It's a thoroughly modern dilemma: Finding information on the Web is easier with a PC--but for bringing that data with you, nothing beats a smartphone. Google has come up with a great way of moving the info you need from your computer to an Android handset. Download the Chrome to Phone extension for the Chrome browser and the matching app for your Froyo-powered smartphone (both programs are free), and then follow the instructions to link the app to your Google account. The next time you discover a Web page, phone number, map, or YouTube video that you want to access on your phone, simply click a button in the Chrome toolbar. Within seconds, the data shows up on your phone.

Ranker: List-o-mania!
