    #1 Clown off in photobooth.
    #2 Invert screen colors command+option+control+8. Try it at your local BestBuy and watch people freak out.
    #3 Press and hold shift when minimizing applications or opening the dashboard.
    #4 The summarize service, in safari or text edit select some text then under Safari>Services click on Summarize. Dragging the slider makes the text shorter and shorter. I think it works better with longer texts.

    'Nuff said, my friend. OS X is best experienced, not described...and that experience more than lives up to expectations. In a way, I guess you could say the entire OS is a "cool trick"

    Ya I love OSX, hands down much cleaner and hassle free compared to crappy windows. And the invert color trick is pretty cool. Thanks Guys

    restart with no problems after a system update

    restart without destroying user account password for the administrator after a reboot

    not take 3 minutes to load a RAW file in adobe camera RAW

    no need to edit your registry after seemingly 'uninstalling' a program

    create photo slideshows without extra software needed

    i'm sure there are zillions more...

    Anything a PC can do, a Mac can do better. Except catch viruses and download malware.
