Droid tethering with PdaNet

By the way, I forgot to mention that while John and I were on our Codestock trip, I got tired of hoping beyond hope that the 2.2 Froyo update would appear on my Verizon Droid and purchased a license for the PdaNet software for Android. (I have a great fear of open wi-fi access points.)

It worked flawlessly with both the Mac OS X and Windows 7 operating systems on my BootCamp MacBook Pro. Nice job June Fabrics. Here is a link to their Android product:

The demo of the software will run for 14 days, and then it will start blocking secure web sites. Also, you install a client application on your Windows or Macintosh computer that you need to run, along with running the PdaNet application on your device and activating the USB or Bluetooth mode. I did not try the Bluetooth mode, I just brought my Droid USB cable and communicated that way.

I highly recommend the software for Droid owners who need an internet connection on their laptop while on the go.
