 LastPass should be easier to use on the BlackBerry PlayBook. LastPass, if you haven't read before, is an online password management service. More than that, LastPass has taught me to make better passwords. Each of my websites has a different, randomly-generated password.

QR Clock: The coolest app you’ll see all day that does nothing.

 To put it in the developer's own words, "[QR Clock] really has no purpose unless you've got a sense of humor."
