What Does A Hood Spoiler & A Vortex Generator do?

I saw a couple of these on ebay and I've always wondered...what in the world do they do? Is it just for looks? or do they serve a purpose?

The vortex generator is exactly that, it generates a vortex.

Apparantly it's a useful thing if you're travelling at over250km/h regularly.
