Transmission
Transmission is a bittorrent application that is easy, fast and free. It runs on Linux and Mac, and is the default torrent client on Ubuntu. It can run as stand-alone application, but more interesting as a daemon on a server that allows access via a web interface and other remote applications.

Android
Google Android is an open platform for mobile devices. Currently the T-Mobile G1 is the only publically available Andforid-powered phone (apart from the ADP for developers), but more are coming. It is a direct competitor to Apple’s iPhone.
