    I'd like to be able to keep tabs on my dogs while I'm away... Ideally, I picture an app running on my PC that can stream audio to my cell, when I run an app on my cell...

    Any ideas around this?

    Oh, and there can be monkeys in the middle (PC to webpage to phone)...

    I've written an app that can do what you describe. Any music or audio from your PC, including microphone input, can be captured and streamed live to your phone. See SoundWire on the Android Market.

    I haven't tested it over cell data networks, only WiFi so far, so you'd have to try it and see if it works. SoundWire transmits uncompressed audio but plans for adding compression/decompression are in the works so drop me a comment on the market if you're interested in this feature.
