    I didn't have the sound turned up, but it looks like someone just discovered the well-known fact that the Apple logo is just a cutout of the lid, and is illuminated by the screen backlight. A bright light can shine through that cutout from either direction, as some have noticed when using their Mac portable in direct sunlight. That's not exactly an "awesome trick". Did I miss something?

    Not really a trick, I don't know why you want to use you screen via flashlight. Thats what backlights are for..... now hit command+option+control+8

    It is actually there for people who have bad eye sight to make things easier to see and read, but its not all that known and still a fun little trick, much better than using a flashlight to illuminate your screen lol. I mean seriously a flashlight? Now hold shift and minimize safari or any open application.
