    I remember seeing a post a while ago about cool tricks you can do on your keyboard to make the screens minimize slowly, or reversing the screen colors. Something about holding down the shift/command key, but I can't remember which!

    ctrl+option+apple+8 for reversing the screen colors, actually it does not reverse it but shows it like a negative.
    shift+minimize to minimize slowly.

    cheers

    ctrl+alt+apple key+8 turns scren like a negative.

    Hold the shift key while using expose, or minimizing/maximizing windows to see it in slow motion.

    edit:damn, beaten to it by 1 minute! :p

    option + command + '=/+ key' to zoom in

    You have to have zooming enabled in the Universal Preferences in System Preferences.

    not to mention the EVER USABLE screen capture commands.

    shift+command(apple)+3=full screen capture
    shift+command(apple)+4=area highlight capture

    a must know

    in all fairness, you can do that on a PC...

    Print Screen (captures whole screen to clipboard)
    Alt + Print Screen (active window)

    keys seem more intuitive than Shift+Cmd+3 (printing screen to a file) but I DO like Shift+Command+4
