10.3: Expand Mail.app threads in slow motion Apps
Just as useless as the other shift slow motion hints, but if you hold the shift key down while opening a group of messages in Mail (with the little arrow), it will expand or collapse slowly. I am starting to see a trend here.

[robg adds: With this, the Exposť hint a bit further down the page, and the hints referenced in the Exposť hint, suffice it to say that the issue of slow-motion effects in OS X has now been thoroughly documented here. If you want to see something in slow motion in some Apple program, hold down the Shift key and see what happens!]

While we all can agree that slow-mo effects are utterly useless we must also all agree that they are, nonetheless, terribly cool.

I'm sure they use that during development to watch the animation in detail to make sure it's working properly. And why take it out, it is fun to see.

Hey - I'm trying to run iMovie on a 300 mhz ibook with 160 MB RAM with a FULL hard disk and it's extremely slow... do you think my shift key is just stuck down?

; )

Also works in iTunes with the Browse panel, the album art area, etc. :)
