How to get feedback without the i-clicker

Poll everywhere is an easy to use web-based application for polling an audience. You type a question, open the poll, and begin receiving responses. This application could be used in large classrooms similar to i-clicker . Students would either need their cell phone to send a text message or their laptop to submit a vote. The following video provides a demonstration of its use. You can also visit their website (Poll Everywhere) for more information.

My real question about this technology is, how do use it? Not implement, but what does it get you in the classroom? I've never found a time when I wanted to poll students, I guess, but I generally have trouble thinking of ways to acutally apply this whole i-clicker/polling thing... especially in classes under 100 students.
