I recently purchased an iPad (3G 32 Gigabytes). I'm not using the 3G part of it, though. A) it's on At&t network which is horrible and B) I already have wireless internet on my droid. While I've used and really like pdanet, I found it to be just a little limited. Connecting via blutooth or usb is a bit of a hassle, blutooth drops connections left and right and usb requires that you carry around an extra chord all day. So, I looked into alternatives to pdanet. My ultimate solution was to use wireless tether after rooting my droid. This is fantastic. It allows me to connect my iPad and gaming consoles to the internet when I'm on the road. It's basically like walking around with a wireless router in my pocket. It's a useful hack that allows me to use my droid and a Verizon wifi. This should be even easier with froyo. Then I fired up my favorite remote connection program (I use pc2me because it has audio and you can purchase a special service to stream skype calls.) Now my beast of a desktop goes with me everywhere.
