Mac provides you various ways to display your Date & Time. You can either display it to cling on your menu bar or to snap on your Finder Window.
Lately, most of the people use large monitor as their desktop. If you have monitor size of 1680×1050 pixels then if you print screen the entire screen, the file size will be much larger than after adjusting.
If you clever enough, you will make use your photoshop and shrink the file dimension. Therefore, if you want to print five screens then you have to repeat that five times. That will be troublesome, I think.
The easiest way is by adjusting your screen resolution inside Display Preference Pane. Using QuickSilver search for
playpref and you will got application you want. Or you can go under System Preference.
You must have seen these dialog box. The most common one and the most useful. Here I will give detail for the order of

Pick up interesting topic about comparing Mac and Windows booting time. Here is the quote..
I frequently hear apocryphal stories about Macs booting much faster than Windows boxes. There’s a great set of Mac boot time benchmarks on the Silver Mac site that provide solid empirical data to back up those claims:
Wow, PC boot times really do suck, right? Well, maybe. It depends on the PC.
Thanks to Jeff Atwood for his information. And he talk further about improving boot time for Windows. Visit him for more information on that.
By the way I feel the same way as him. When using Windows, the boot time is way too slow compare with Mac, but I am not as excellent as Jeff Atwood in wrapping the information in detail.
Thumbs up for Jeff, thumbs up for Mac – Four Thumbs Up for both.

For most of people, image take a very good part in creating mood. Sometimes, someone want to take some screen shots from some images to use into some purposes (and I think I use some words that you spell it some).
Mac supplies you with the feature to taking screen shot, that its smoothness is the best. You can capture screen shots into the form of file or you can capture into clipboard for making further modification to your print screen.
I think you all know how to use this print screen thing works. Therefore, I will just give you some tricks of screen shot making.
Do you realize that, Mac uses Command-Option-3, Command-Option-4, Command-Option-Shift-3 and Command-Option-Shift-4 for screen shot taking? Those are very long keystrokes.
For people who often use this screen shot. I suggest you customize your shortcut. You just need to go to QuickSilver and use keyword keymouse and then customize your screen shot shortcut. For your reference, I only customize shortcut for save picture of screen as file to F13. You see, just one key, we can take picture of the entire desktop.

Feeling stress on finding specific file that buried inside the ton of files. Like searching a sand in the ocean. With Mac, you do not have to worry about that. Mac, just like a car, has a very powerful, very bright, and extremely smart Spotlight. Spotlight can search everything that you want. Whenever, wherever you need it, spotlight will show you the way. I mean, you can find it at every corner.
You can make yourself your own spotlight shortcut (if you have QuickSilver, you can open with
spotp). And something like this will show up. You can see there is two kind of shortcuts for spotlight.
