Banned Android Apps store being developed by ClockworkMod maker Koush

Android hacker Koush makes mobile internet tethering undetectable by carriers

When the idea that your smartphone's data connection would be able to be shared by your laptop with no additional charge, everyone seemed to be on board - over the past year, carriers have started up extra costs for this and have struck down all attempts by apps to sidestep the process - until now. What one of the most well-known hacker/developers in the world Koushik Dutta, aka Koush, has done is to create a non-market app that allows you to use your smartphone as an internet hotspot, doing so without adding costs to you beyond what that data would cost to you on your smartphone on its own. And it's completely (nearly) undetectable by carriers.
