Nice find! I am definitely gonna try this at home tonight. If nothing else I really like the ability to move music and shows to my phone without using the usb cable. One less cable on my desk would be nice.

Wonderful, but I am concerned about my privacy being undermined by Carrier IQ issues. How? Well, how do we know that your desktop navigation is not being logged by CIQ in your Android device? Really disappointed with this CIQ thing. But this application sounds great.

As an alternative, I've been using "Remote Web Desktop" (https://market.android.com/details?id=net.xdevelop.rm&feature=related_apps) on my Android for about a year. It's been very convenient for me to manage my music files on my phone, and keep up on texts from my desktop computer, rather than pulling out my phone all the time.

Remote Web Desktop works OTA via the phones internet connection, so you're not limited to using this functionality when you've got your phone connected to a wifi network. I access my phone (not on WiFi) from my desktop (wired broad-band) at work with no issues.

Nothing exciting or new here.

I wonder if it is possible to connect to a laptop without a router.

I feel that wireless access is most usefull when you have your laptop and your android phone and quckly want to access files or copy files between either device.

Often I don't have a micro-usb to usb cable with me all the time.
And it is more of a hazzle to fiddle with cables on for example a train when you just want to do a quick fix.

Shouldn't it be possible since you can set up the phone as a wifi hotspot?

This is not new. Eg. Nokia's PC Suite and OVI Suite offered similar functionality, depending on the phone (talking about the older, Symbian phones). It was very convenient to text using the PC keyboard, install or uninstall apps, backup everything, and manage your contacts. But not through Wi-Fi, only Cable, BT and IR.
So, I'll agree, this is something Google should have thought about much earlier. It's still not too late, though.
