You can download stuff with it. You simply search for anything you want on a torrent site and you download the .torrent file, which you open with a torrent program (I recommend uTorrent - http://www.utorrent.com/). The speed of your download depends mostly on the amount of seeders (uploaders). Downloaders are called leechers. A good torrent site is http://www.torrentz.com/... It searches on several torrent sites, so you will find the most results there.
