    Does the iMac and Safari in particular support flash video from websites, in particular those mini games that kids can play?

    I'm a little confused with all the hoohaa about the iPhone and upcoming iPad not having Adobe Flash and Air support. Is this limited to the iPhone OS only?

    Yeah that's only limited to the iPhone OS.

    Macs have Flash pre-installed and updates are done through Apple's software updater. It works just fine in Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc out of the box.

    People complain about Flash running slowly but I don't really notice any problems. There's an app called ClickToFlash that disables Flash elements of websites until you click them which might help performance for general browsing when you're not actually using Flash at the time.

    Another quick question....

    Is there a keyboard shortcut that is similar to using the "Home" and "End" commands on a PC keyboard?

    I have checked Apple online - Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts and iPirate's List of Keyboard Shortcuts but no luck there.
    Cheers

    Yep. Command + left arrow for home and command + right arrow for end.

    Some more tips:
    Option + left/right arrow will move your cursor by one word. Fn + left/right arrow takes you to the top/bottom of your current window.

    And if you're using Office for Mac you can ignore these shortcuts because MS don't implement them properly.

    Yep. I bought my first Mac last night (base i5 15" MBP, hurrah) and found this thread indispensable. Thank you so much.

    Leopard - Aussie English:

    In International System Preference, choose edit menu, and tick Australian English.

    Then save, and choose it from the main list.

    Ok, all the broken links should now be fixed. Please PM me if you find any or have any suggestions about stuff to add.

    I also fixed the Leopard/Vista file sharing thread. I need to do one for Win 7 sometime too.

    VANESSA ARNOLD is a Southern California native born in the Los Angeles area. At the age of 12, her parents moved the family to their home country of Belize. Although her parents had struggled to live the American dream, their ultimate goal was to own a business and home in Belize. Her father opened his auto mechanic shop while her mother managed its operations, and they eventually designed and built their dream house.

    SYNCIS – Strengthening Families With Trust and Understanding

    Growing up, Vanessa was always stressed the importance of an education and college degree. By the age of 18, she had graduated from junior college with an Associate Degree in Biology. Her plan was to move back to California and continue her studies at university. However, like many young students, she found herself with a big dream and the harsh reality of how much an American university education really costs. Her parents had always encouraged her studies but had no financial planning in place to support her. With her family still living in Belize, she made a pivotal decision to join the U.S. Air Force.

    Team Elite

    Vanessa served active duty for 4 years in Arizona as a medical administrative assistant. She honorably discharged from the military at the end of her term and immediately entered the civilian workforce. Her career as an executive administrative assistant has spanned the last 20 years in the medical, legal, computer engineering, and real estate industries. Most recently, she spent the last 10 years working directly for the CEO of Southern California’s largest commercial real estate company.
