Android is sad

Android is sad

While not entirely unexpected, it appears that Google has started removing tethering applications from the Android Market.  For those of you unfamiliar with the term tethering, it refers to using a cell phone as a modem for a personal computer or similar device.  It gets its name from the cable that often links the two, which acts as a tether of sorts (though Bluetooth can also be used in lieu of a cable).

My friend Chris Davies of Android Community has written up a nice explanation of what appears to be going on at the Android Market, so I recommend that you read what he has to say.
