PdaNet is not a new app, nor are apps for tethering new. I even wrote about and downloaded PdaNet back in Sept.  Story here. I never did have a use for it, nor did I expect I ever would, till today.  I took a 2 mile walk to starbucks (need the exercise) expecting to have a coffee and do some geeking. The wireless was down!!  WT??  Great.  Then I remembered PdaNet.  I tried to set it up once when it was netshare and had little luck with it.  Well, now that I had time on my hands, I gave it another try.

I just read this in cnet.

AT&T confirms tethering coming to iPhone in 2009

Eh. Perhaps. There is nothing to gain and a bit to lose for AT&T to do it now.  So I’m guessing they are keeping this in their pockets as a way to fight the sure to come competition from other service providers.

When NetShare first came out, I did not download it because … bah, I do not remember why not.  However, once it was pulled off the app store, I really wish I did.

I do not need tethering that often, in fact, I only rememeber wishing I had it once, but in the jailbreak world, once is enough.

So here you go folks.  Go and get it.  I’ve already downloaded and will be mucking with it tomorrow. Remember, jailbreak ( pwn’ers ) only.
