    I am looking for a book, or even a web tutorial, that would teach me how to utilize and eventually write applescripts, automator, XCode. I have already looked over <>, and while it was a great introduction I am looking for something a bit more in depth for a noob. Any suggestions would be great.

    For AppleScript, I like AppleScript: The Missing Manual. Xcode is just a program for writing software in multiple languages, but if you want to program for the Mac, my recommendation is to learn Objective-C and Cocoa. Objective-C is the language, Cocoa is the set of APIs/Frameworks that Apple provides for OS X development. Learn Objective-C from Programming in Objective-C by Stephen Kochan and Cocoa from Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X by Aaron Hillegass. They're both great books.
