Got Jailbreak? Don't Care About TOS? Get iPhone 3G Tethering!

Depending on your carrier, their terms of service (TOS), and your willingness to break said terms and face possible consequences including death-by-over-billing, you can now tether you newly pwned/jailbroken iPhone 3G to your laptop to share the mobile 3G internet connection anywhere and everywhere you go (your coverage area, of course, may vary).

The process is a little involved, according to Macrumors (via Cre.ations.net):

Jailbreak your iPhone 3G. Install 3Proxy and Terminal. Create an ad-hoc Wi-fi network using your laptop. Join the network with your iPhone. Find the iPhone's IP address Open Terminal and run the proxy program. Open Safari on your iPhone and open a web page. Configure your browser to use the proxy.

Not a 133t level hax0r? Don't worry. AT&T (and other carriers) might just offer this option, complete with inevitable bandwidth cap, 'natch, sometime in the next millennium...

Hey, just thought I would drop a line to let you know that your site took a little while to load... are you using a caching plugin? I don't know if they have caching plugins for Blog Engine, but I know they do for Wordpress and it makes my Wordpress sites load A LOT faster! Maybe it was just my internet connection though, check your webmasters tools and see what it says the load time is.

Some tools which automate social bookmarking will bookmark automatically some other links and merge these in with your main site links. This makes your bookmarking process seem more natural and less likely to be deleted by an admin. Using one of these softwares can greatly increase the effectiveness of any link building promotion.

The big banks and Wall Street took billions in bailout money from taxpayers and then turned it into huge profit. Last week a veteran trader showed his insiders how the big banks manipulate the market (real examples) and why our investment dollars are always at high risk.
Fight the banks - Now I could understand why we never get out from under our banker's thumb..It is sure the big banks dont want us to see this.

Already been engaged in cellular communications as an RF engineer since 1982 when I worked for Motorola. Had Blackberrys for the last eight years or so, but just pre purchased a Samsung Vibrant through Tmobile. Want some new capabilities and a brand new Os to play with. I'm disappointed that Tmobile has switched away from the wifi hotspot feature in the Samsung Vibrant, but I'm certain somebody will figure out exactly how to root it and add the feature back in. I'm now having a wi-fi compatability only iPad and want to wirelessly tether it to the mobile phone. Looking forward to getting my new phone!

Heike Wendelken says:

Good information. Today I just got a Samsung Omnia SCH-i910 inside the mail from ebay, and it currently appears that it is at stock settings to the Verizon Network. I strategy to utilize this cell phone on Metro PCS. I also desire to set Windows Mobile 6.five on here, but I'm not confident which purchase I need to do this in. Should I bring it to Metro PCS as is and have it activated, and then afterwards flash the ROM with 6.five? Or must I modify the ROM first and be able to carry it to Metro PCS? I've been browsing around and I'm unable to locate the answer to this.

Skip Hop Studio Diaper Tote Tote is awesome.So a lot of pockets - and also not really these little, useless pockets, either. All of the storage compartments are a great size and actually assist maintain everything organized. The handles are a excellent length and fit nicely more than the actual shoulder; the handle shoulder straps additionally stay put on my own shoulder, which is actually vital when you are transporting a baby. The tote appears good, too. Not too fancy, but not as well casual. (I have it in black) The material is soft (can't consider of a greater word) so it is uncomplicated to squeeze in to tight spaces - but yet it's sturdy. I've a Fleurville Lexi carrier and I adore it, as well, but this handbag is type of stiff. I consider this Skip*Hop will grow to be my daily tote. It's a bit large - so if you're not really in to huge hand bags this might be far better as an over-night baby diaper tote.
