Useful but not well-known web tools

Recent/Obscure web applications and tools filter. I am talking with a government department (Economic Development) about using web based applications and tools both internally and externally. I've got the basics covered, but it would be nice to include mentions of some less-than-famous apps or tools that have been of use elsewhere. If there are any that have provided some mileage for you or your organisation, especially govt ones, I'd love to hear about them.

Can I transfer "used" aps from a used iphone I bought to my other iphone?

I just bought a used Iphone 3g, jailbroken. It has some applications on it. I want to either transfer them to another iphone or at least keep them and still be able to download new aps. But when I go to sync aps, it tells me it will erase the aps that came with the used phone, and add the aps I have in Itunes. Which sounds like I'm not supposed to be able to do this (I'm guessing because I'm supposed to buy the used aps new.) Is there a way of doing this? And, if so, is it legal? [more inside]

Damaged goods looking to finish her BA.

New Smartphone: help me make it smarter

New Windows Mobile smartphone after years with Palm. 1. What are the best apps for a writer/teacher/trivia nut? 2. What is the best dictionary/thesaurus program? WordnetCE is not working, and the other choices I have found seem to lead back to it. 3. I like using Tasks on my Today screen, but the set-up I have either shrinks them to nothing or buries them.
