You are now free to tether your iPhone

Some clever developers have figured out a way to tether your iPhone to your OS X-equipped computer.

If you’re still game, read on. Nate True, the brilliant mind that brought the remote desktop to your iPhone, seems to have done it a again. Through a series of steps that are outlined clearly on his site, he’s made it possible for iPhone users to utilize their phone’s internet connection by way of the wired cable connection.
