The average programmer has never ever any incentive to become more 
productive. His boss is happy, his paycheck comes in on time, his hours 
are okay, what else does he want?

Can you show them that you can accomplish more than they can? Even if 
you can, it wouldn't change their mind until they are told to perform 
at your level.

Killer apps? That's a content question, not a tool question.
