Android Desktop Notifier Alerts you of SMS, Phone Calls, & More
How’d you like to get notifications from your Android phone onto your desktop Mac or Windows PC?
This cool little utility will notify you of incoming SMS’s, phone calls, and battery notifications, right on your desktop. The app installs on your Android and also on your desktop PC and communicates through Bluetooth, it’s fully multi-platform compatible so it will work in Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
You can grab the Android Desktop Notifier tool at Google code.
This is a really great addition to the desktop computers of Android phone users.

Why isn’t there something like this for iPhone? Such a simple idea.
