GSM Phone as Bluetooth Modem

I recently stumbled upon this great piece by John R. Chang on using a GSM Phone as a Bluetooth Modem on Mac OS X. Funnily enough, the set-up he’s outlining is nearly exactly the same one I have.

Back when Rich and I covered WWDC 2005, we were hard-pressed to find a reliable WiFi link during the Keynote, as all nodes were quickly overloaded and brought to their knees. So I eventually dialed-up over bluetooth via the Sony Ericsson t610 with a dial-up account to bring you the live updates …

WiFi is cool, GigE is cool too. But in a pinch, a good ol’ analog dial-up can save the day.
