For Those About to Dock!: docking miracles made easy

You have to hand it to Apple: When it comes to application launching and switching, they have created the Venus de Milo of application launchers and switchers with Mac OS X's Dock. Okay, that just sounds weird. How about “the crème de la crème” of launchers and application switchers? Nah, it just doesn't sound sexy enough to describe all the really cool things the Dock lets you do. Okay, how about this: “When it comes to doing it, the Dock totally rocks!” Nah, that sounds too “Eminem.” Instead, perhaps we should look at the word “Dock” itself. It's clearly a derivative of the popular Latin phrase “One, two, three o-clock, four o-clock, Dock,” which, if memory serves me correctly, is inscribed on the torch held high by Lady Liberty in New York Harbor (and Lady Liberty was presented to the United States by French Prime Minister Bill Haley, around five, six, seven o'clock).
