Advice on applying machine learning:
Slides from Andrew's lecture on getting machine learning algorithms to work in practice can be found here.

Matlab Resources
Here are a couple of Matlab tutorials that you might find helpful: Matlab Tutorial and A Practical Introduction to Matlab. For emacs users only: If you plan to run Matlab in emacs, here are matlab.el, and a helpful emac's file.
Octave Resources
For a free alternative to Matlab, check out GNU Octave. The official documentation is available here. Some useful tutorials on Octave include Octave Tutorial and Octave on Wiki.
Here is the UCI Machine Learning Repository, which contains a large collection of standard datasets for testing learning algorithms. If you want to see examples of recent work in machine learning, start by taking a look at the conferences Neural Information Processing Systems (all old NIPS papers are online) and ICML. Some other related conferences include UAI, AAAI, IJCAI.
Viewing PostScript and PDF files:
Depending on the computer you are using, you may be able to download a PostScript viewer or PDF viewer for it if you don't already have one.
