    Has anybody else stumbled upon slo-mo dashboard? Hold Shift while you enable Dashboard. Don't have any idea why someone might REALLY use this, but thought I should share! :)

    Lots of visual effects go by this rule...Exposé, minimizing a window, etc..

    I'm not really sure why it's there either, but kinda cool :)

    Now try it while you minimize a window using the genie effect. Looks pretty cool. :)

    I love to use the slo-mo effects to show off OS X to people :) In slo-mo you can really tell how smooth the OS X animations are. Love it!

    Here's a nifty thing my friend showed me using shift and exposé. Open terminal and type the command "killall Dock" (minus " of coarse) and now open a window (iTunes and a big music library will probably be best) and hold down shift and minimize the window, while it's doing the genie effect, quickly go to the terminal window and press enter on the command. Now the window will stop mid-genie effect, if you have window where you can scroll, scroll down it and it increases the coolness :D. (hopefully I made a good explanation of the process)

    Wow, that's awesome. I had never tried that before. The crazy part is, iTunes is still useable and it's all....distorted. :D
