I have an idea for a ecommerce web site. I am currently a web application developer, and I ran an ecommerce site for a few years so I have a great concept of the nuts and bolts. I just wanted to ask for help because I am likely to be weak on the business end and design end of things - I have no clue how to start a business or design an entire website from scratch - let alone do in part-time on top of a full-time job.

The App store on the iPhone is so cluttered it's practically unbrowsable for me. Things are only a little bit better on the desktop version of iTunes. For the most part I've been finding cool applications as they are mentioned in some of the blogs I already read. Surely there are some websites out there that keep up a good overview of the best iPhone apps. What sites are you using to find good apps for the iPhone?

Is there a good website for generic computer hardware information and comparisons? By that I mean a website that compares, for example, different RAM technologies and their pros and cons -- as opposed to comparing brands. It needs to be updated frequently. [more inside]

Like many, I like designer handbags...though not so much the price tag. Anyone know of a good website that sells good replicas that is based in Canada? There are some good American and International sites but I'm worried about getting hit with duty when it crosses the border. I'm close to Toronto but don't really want to go to Chinatown to search. Any suggestions?
Two ColdFusion applications on separate subdomains in IIS are getting confused with eachother. How do I properly separate them? Note: My experience with ColdFusion starts with Metafilter and ends with my recent editing of jrun-web.xml. [more inside]
Can you point me to any examples of “neighborhood watch” type websites, such as the ever creepy ISawYourNanny.blogspot? Basically, any site where Joe Schmo can share what he saw someone do in a public space? It doesn't have to be about neighborhood crime, anything will do.

Is offering up long blocks of academic web page content an inherently bad idea, ignoring ad revenue, bandwidth and clickthroughs?
Do longer articles on the web really have to be split up into small, bite-size pieces as most sites seem to prefer doing? Putting ad revenue and click-through considerations aside, I need to know if there are any dangers associated with keeping a ~5k to ~15k word article on one page is an inherently bad idea.

I've had what I think is a decent idea for a website. Rather than asking someone to "punch it up" in their "spare time" I'd like to learn to do it myself. I know a bit about html and took a turbo pascal class 11 years ago. Since then it's been all humanities, social science, and law. What do I need to learn and what, in your experience, are the best books/web sites to learn from? [more inside]
What are your favorite mobile (non-iphone) websites? I'm interested in all topics, but, particularly, useful tools when I'm out and about, e.g., weather, traffic, price comparison, etc.) I saw a question from a couple years ago on this topic, but I'm betting there's been a lot of development in this area.

Internet mechanics and conspiracy: With the recent news of Pakistan somehow taking YouTube down, Swiss banks forcing U.S hosts to ban WikiLeaks, under-water cables being cut and the US government having the power to ban Cuba-related domains, I was wondering: if the U.S "turns off the internet", what could be done? How powerful is it in this respect? [more inside]

I once read a book about a couple of autograph hounds who ranked celebrities by their willingness to meet with fans and sign autographs. If this system were ported to the web and opened to the public, allowing anyone who's had contact with a celebrity to rank their experience, how could you validate that the encounter actually happened?
