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.

I watched this with great interest. The questions were great... as I am about the same age... and am getting ready to set up my "new" gen.3 iPad. I also have the new Apple TV and wish that all video Podcasts were at least 720p or 1080p. Now that I have all the latest (Apple) gadgets and watch most of my "TV" through iTunes and the internet (although I have DirecTV Premium) I am mostly looking for "Hi-Def" video. Thanks for a great show. Perhaps in the future they can be a little higher video quality.
