Pandora, Out of Milk (grocery list, no more paper to lose), Netflix, Skype, Google Sky when the kids ask "what's that constellation/star/planet?", Midwest supplies for brewing equipment...
Those are the big ones.

Good topic, I need to utilize my smartphone more. I just installed advanced task killer, it closes programs that might be sucking data from your phone and kills anything you fo not want open, in theory saves battery usage.

Android wifi tether without rooting. Apparently there was a lawsuit by the carriers trying to block it but a judge threw it out so now it's available to everyone. It works too and it's free. I have a buddy who uses it and it is really simple to use.

Note: It doesn't work with older HTC phones, the software on there blocks it or something. Guess which type of phone I have?

A failing phone would be my guess.

Nice. Now if only AT&T didn't want to charge me $20 to be able to use the hotspot feature on my iPhone....
