Generic question about what cool apps I should put on my new Android phone? Help me parse the techblog noise and get to the meat and find the ultimate performance- and life-enhancing applications for my phone.

I've finally caved, rid myself of my Treo, and bought a 2ndhand G1. I'm happy with it. I'm loving having wifi, GPS, and all that good stuff.
But, I've browsed through Market, and read a million "Top Ten" lists of cool software to throw onboard, and I'm just a little overwhelmed. I know Dolphin is the be all and end all of browsers, I've got meebo for my messaging, and I know about cyanogen, but it's a little intimidating...I figure I'll hold off on that until I get a little more familiar with the system.
What are the killer apps that you use on your Android? What are the resources you watch to learn about new technologies and ideas with it?
For what it's worth, I'm a translator in China, which means I don't have access to paid Market stuff yet, and dictionaries and document editing are very important to me.
