You can browse the SD card in the phone like a memory stick so backing up on that level is easy. As for backing up apps there are free apps that will allow you to backup to sd card then to your pc if you like.
Other more advanced things you maybe interesting in include
1 Remote controlling you mythtv box using the android phone
2 Streaming music and video from your network host to the phone
3 using ssh and telnet or even gui log onto you computer through you phone.
4 many other possibilities
Ps I have a G1 with android 1.6 but the nexus one is equally if not more capable.
