Ready to share your iPhone’s data plan with your laptop without springing for the requisite tethering plan? No, it’s not another brightly colored, data smuggling easter egg, it’s iTether, a USB tethering app that has apparently made its way through Apple’s approval process. The data sharing newcomer promises to pipe your existing data plan to your PC via a companion desktop application. If history is anything to go by, this $15 app won’t be available for long, so you’d better get while the getting’s good — it seems that high demand has already taken Tether’s website down.
