Chapter 6. Stream cool things > Quite a combo with your laptop

Quite a combo with your laptop

Make a (cabled) modem out of your smartphone with

  • A Treo smartphone with a wireless data plan

  • A standard USB cable for synchronizing between the laptop and the Treo smartphone

  • Third-party software like PdaNet (for Windows) or Wireless Modem (for Macs)

  • A PC running Windows XP/2000/ME/98SE, or a Mac running OSX


Power tip

An active data connection is the single biggest drain of power from your battery. Use a sync & charge cable to charge your phone from the computer's USB port to increase your time online.
