It's funny you guys bitch and bitch about apple locking down there phones. When was the last problem like this with iOS devices. I know jailbroken iphones/ipods with ssh enabled an the default alpine pass at one time got caught in a worm that would simply rickroll your iphone basicly. Open platform means you are hoping the people who made your software are nice. What the last ios problem was a developer hacking in a script to let your volume buttons take pictures. ;) Alot better then a 3000 dollar cellphone bill

Jailbreak the iphone
add to cydia
Install "MyWi" in the Xapps group
1. Turn on
2. Make network
3. Open/WEP encrypted wifi network which shares your internet. It's perfect. Not only can you tether to one device you can tether to anyone around you with the key (or keep the network open) great for roadtrips if someone has an ipod touch or a netbook.


+ - Open Source Uses for Extra Bandwidth?

Submitted by
yourexhalekiss writes "I recently signed up for a website hosting plan from a relatively well-known host. After about a month or so of use, I've discovered that I'm using approximately 0.5 gigabyte of bandwidth per month, or 0.5% of my total monthly allowance. Are there open source projects out there that could benefit from my donated bandwidth? I know everyone needs mirrors for one thing or another, but how do I know who needs content mirrored, and what's the best way to get in touch with them? Is there some sort of online clearinghouse for donated bandwidth, or open source projects that rely on donated bandwidth to operate?"
