It’s officially out of RC/Test stage. WordPress 2.5 is the latest blogging software version and you can download it for free at WordPress.org. There is also a hosted solution at WordPress.com.
Things I recommend
Dropbox - File storage & sharing in the cloud. Sign up for free (also with Android app)
Android powered - Smart phone.
A Google account - Gmail, Calendar, Notes, etc. It is the best email provider for free mail. So many awesome features in a simple interface. Best spam protection.
GNotes (Android app) - companion for Google tasks
