Say you are running an android emulator for development reason and you want to copy some text to the (emulated) screen. That would be a CTRL+V on most platforms/applications.
But we developers have better ways, just:
# telnet localhost 5554
sms send 123123123 The text you want to copy
You send an SMS to the phone, then in the emulator, open the message, copy the text, and paste wherever you want. Get it? Ain't that just beautiful?
This is the brain of developers laid bare for your wonderment. I kid you not.
P.s: hats off to Stack Overflow for the tip
