first, i hope i am in the right area for this type of questions.
ok. Just got my first smartphone, a droid. I would like to hook it up to a laptop or a computer now and then (i have read they call it tethering), but i have read the phone needs to be 'rooted'. can someone tell me what 'rooting' the phone is? what does it allow the phone to do?
when tethering, will the droid display show on the desktop/laptop monitor?
