I've been using my iPhone 3GS as a modem for my MacBook. This causes me great joy!
CNET's Brian Tong has the instructions in his 6/26/09 podcast of "The Apple Byte":
Launch the Safari browser on your iPhone running 3.0 (and 3.0 only) and go to help.benm.at/help.php
Under "Tethering & Internet Settings" click "download" next to mobileconfigs and follow the directions. It just takes a moment.
Now Internet Tethering will be an option in your iPhone's network settings. Connect your phone to your laptop with the USB cable, then turn on Internet tethering on the iPhone and select "USB Only". Magic!

Two Ron Arad design 'Rover' Chairs have come up for sale in the San Francisco Bay Area! This is the same limited edition chair used by Jeremy Clarkson on the BBC's Top Gear car show. The beautiful pleated leather seats are taken from 1963-1977 Rover P6's.
From the seller: "I have two of them, not in mint condition, and would like to sell them. I was wondering if you knew of any potential buyers here in the Bay Area."
"I really do not know what the price should be. The only time I have seen them sold was in 2002 when they fetched $1900 each in auction. They were in good condition and my upholstery is not."
