In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.

Thanks, Tonya. As one who is your father’s age, I have lived through several generations of digital divides. From college in 1968 when IBM 360 and Fortran IV was cutting edge technology to today’s world. Although I have a MBP that I use every day, I have not made the transition to the iPad (perhaps in the next year!). But your insight is right on target.
