Droidcam lets you use your mobile phone as a webcam. Great thing about it is if you are using version Android 2.3 and up, you can use either the front or back camera.
There are four ways to connect your mobile phone to your pc.
1. Connect to Phone (wifi/Lan)
2. Connect to phone(usb)
Create a PC Server ( Wifi)
Create PC Server ( Bluetooth)
The easiest way is option no 1. via wifi. All you need to do is connect both your laptop and phone via wifi.
Make sure both apps in your pc and phone are on.

Waze is a crowd sourcing traffic application that is very useful to see the traffic around the area.
Each user can user upload updates for others to see like traffic jams, accidents, where police or traffic enforcers are and other items. It can also predict the estimated time it will take you to get to your destination. Cool, right? Of course this app is affected by the number of users that update statuses, and the speed of your 3g connection.
