Sorry if wrong forum but this little gem arrived in the post today.  To be honest, I'd forgotten all about it as it's over a year since I put the peso's into Kickstarter.  Pretty much plug in and play.  Works with the cheapo Android phone and is certainly blocking YouTube adverts. 

I'll let you know if/when it dies lol.

Ugh, ad blocking.

1) Add Geekzone to the whitelist or buy a subscription.
2) Sites you use all the time should be whitelisted too.
3) Sites with ads need the income generated from the ads to keep their site online, if everyone blocks ads then the internet will not exist.

Interesting it blocks Pagefair - which is not an ad delivery platform but a tool to let publishers know how many ads are being blocked.

So, yes, blocking even things that aren't ads is a bit of a strange move.
