iPhone-toting mobile warriors needing an easy (albeit slow) method to get their Mac laptop hooked up to the internet have a friend in Tinyproxy. Now, we’ve covered iPhone tethering (“tethering” refers to a method that allows your laptop to use your mobile phone’s wireless data connection to surf the web, check email, etc.) before, but that was only applicable to Windows machines. If you’re rocking an iPhone to complement that bad-ass MacBook Pro and want to venture into the world of EDGE-speed web surfing, you’ll be happy to know that iPhone-tethered wireless web-access is just a few steps away.
Tinyproxy basically lets you surf the net via your iPhones EDGE data connection. It’s not going to be anything more than a puttering experience, but if you just have to read up on some blogs, make a quick cyber-update or shoot out an email then you’ll be just fine with this solution.
Download Tinyproxy from Installer.app and head on over DragonForged.com for the setup instructions.
