    Very nice

    Very nice, Wish the 'air' had a decent bluetooth radio that would work with tethering. Still a very good hack, pretty straight forward and perhaps when my applecare is over it is one that would be worth attempting!

    Sounds like a fantastic idea to me, and its inside the MBA so it wont make it any buliker...

    Pure genius, nothing short of it.

    What's stopping you from Bluetooth tethering with the MBA? I do it regularly with my BlackBerry 8830...

    That's a very nice mod.
    And the documentation of the workflow was very well done. Way to go!

    Bluetooth tether without problems here, too ... with a BlackBerry 7130e. Nowhere near as fast as USB, but it gets the job done. :)

    I am in agreement with Engadget, I can't believe they didn't include this option direct from Apple

    I just got Sprint EVDO today actually with the release of a new usb modem. This Sierra Compass 597 is like barely 1 ounce in weight and like a stick of gum in size. I love it. I don't need anything more than this. So far so good with Sprint EVDO on my MBA!

    Makes me very tempted to rip her open again! This is cool, very cool.
