How to allow other users access to installed applications on Mac OS X?

I have some apps installed under the admin account on my Mac. I set up standard user accounts on this machine, and I would like these users to access the already installed applications. When they run the app, it either opens in trial mode or asks for a serial number, even though they are already installed. Is there any way to do this?

Start it up, shut it down, but on a schedule

What's the best and most reasonably priced software (or free method), on both the Mac and PC platforms, for scheduling computer startup and shutdown, along with application startup and shutdown. Different software for each platform is fine. Being able to control this from an iPhone would be great too. [more inside]

Anyway to develop iPhone/iTouch apps without investing in a Mac?

I'm interested in developing iPhone/iPod Touch applications, however my understanding is the SDK only works in OSX. I have a XP desktop and a Vista notebook with an AMD Athlon and Turion (both dual core) respectively, both pretty good machines. Is there any way to avoid spending serious cash buying a Mac just to get into iPhone development?

Starting over with a new laptop, how best to stay organized?

I'd like to know the best way to move a selected group of files & applications to a new laptop, and advice to help ensure that my new Mac doesn't get bunged up with duplicate & improperly deleted files like my old one did, with its inexplicably full hard drive and crammed iTunes & iPhoto folders. This is rather lengthy, geared to the slightly moronic layperson (me), and has 6 sub-questions inside. [more inside]
