    Hidden Jems for Mac newbies!
    I just found the coolest thing I never knew about on my new iMac. I was messing around with the remote and found out you can watch movie trailers right there! It was so neat, I wondered if there was any other cool little things like this that may not be all that well known to newbies on a mac?

    Post them here! :dummy:

    Essentially, you're just staring at a 15" (whatever) inch lightbulb. Switching all whites to blacks makes reading/surfing much easier on your eyes.

    Hold down Shift and Option, while clicking the Minimize button of an open window.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    You can actually hold down Shift alone, and double click the window to minimize it, or hit the minimize button.

    Shift alone does it slowly, Shift+Option does it *very* slowly.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    I accidently found out that my Mac talks to me. I highlighted text in iCal, right clicked, went down to Speech and it spoke that line. Cool.
