Here's a great utility for creating custom icon fonts (can you say "retina display"?). Also, the developer responded quickly to a problem I had importing an SVG image (my problem, not the app's fault).

Here's a fun little game for web developers (assuming you're not sick enough already of dealing with browser inconsistencies):

Congrats, you've stumbed on an unfinished project! Feel free to have a play around, but be aware of its unfinishedness. The game is pretty simple, look at some code & decide if it would trigger an HTTP request in the latest stable release of particular browsers. Beware!

I liked this well reasoned explanation of how to teach computer programming — especially because it lets me off the hook a bit for my seeming inability to absorb certain types of information quickly.

I think this idea combined with LastPass (or your favorite password manager) would make the online world a simpler, safer place.
Generate long passwords that are easy to remember. Inspired by xkcd.

What iPad apps do you:
a) find especially useful
b) just really enjoy using

(I don't own an iPad yet.)

Agreed. I like Flipboard and Zite. And in that order. I also like to research travel locations and restaurants, so the TripAdvisor app is a nice-to-have.
