Official support for tethering is still one feature conspicuous by its absence from the Palm Pre's abilities, and the last we heard Palm were cautioning tweakers not to unofficially enable it lest Sprint get upset.  If, though, the promise of sharing all that EVDO Rev.A goodness is just too good to miss, and you fancy some MiFi-style WiFi hotspot action, then homebrew app My Tether is the answer.

Tweet-a-Watt prompts XBee router hack

The Tweet-a-Watt project was good - in fact good enough to win a competition - but there are a few obvious flaws in the first iteration of the design.  Not least is the requirement to have a computer turned on to receive power-use stats and tweet about them; now Adafruit Industries are back with their solution, a hacked $40 ASUS router with XBee wireless capabilities.
