SSHing into your iPhone/iTouch allows you to manage all the files and content that you have on your device directly from your computer. Please note that this will only work with jailbroken devices.

This can be done with wifi connection, so no cord needed.
What you need:
-OpenSSH (available in Cydia/Rock)
