    a mac through a rooted android?

    i know this is kind of an off question as im sure alot of people who are android users are also PC users...

    but the question still stands.

    If you are rooted, you can install Wireless Tether. Anything that uses regular wifi can connect to your phone's mobile internet.

    Lots of presumption there. Actually a lot of Android users have Macs. In any case, the answer is yes. And if you have FroYo, you don't need to be rooted.*




    *depending on device and carrier
