Another good App is RingDroid, it allows you to cut up MP3 files from your SD card so you can set them to the proper length for ringtones and notifications. Pair it with Mabilo which lets you download thousands of song to use for ringtones and notifacation. Both are free in the market place and work on 1.5, 1.6, and 2.0 versions of Android, t-mobile and verizon based phones.

Xpadder needed to be run in compatibility mode in Windows 7 for me. It says its not supported.

Yeah, that's the problem with the freeware version -- the paid-for version does support W7 fully, if I'm correct!

For Android, check out Gmote.  Gives you the ability to stream music from your PC to your phone over 3G, and you can also use the keyboard and touchscreen of the phone as a keyboard or mouse for your computer.  That one requires WiFi but it still works.

 

Same concept but different application is Nebudroid.  Turns your phone into a functioning NES controller that works over WiFi for the JNes NES emulator.  Also works on some online racing game, using the tilt sensor as a steering wheel, tip front and back for gas and brake and so on.    demo vid from the developer.

 

Also, try using transdroid, then any ftp client you can download off of the android market and you have instant access to any song or video you want.  Download to PC via transdroid.  Download to phone via FTP(over a mobile network I might add).

 

And no, you don't need the brand new droid or a rooted phone for any of these.  I do it on my G1, which is rooted but none of these require root access.
