Currently My Apple Mac comes with Python 2.7.x. I try to download Python 3.3 from www.python.org.  However,  it still default to Python 2.7.x.  How can I get the Mac reference the new Python 3.3  and install any downloaded Python Modules with the new version (3.3)
?

You don't mention what version of OSX you're running but I'm assuming you're running the new OSX 10.8 Mavericks.

If you follow the steps here on the Python website you can keep both 2.7 and the new 3.3 running but the 2.7 version will be the default
http://docs.python.org/3/using/mac.html

There are quite a few steps required to manually upgrade Python on OSX to completely switch to using the 3.3 version.

I will defer to this expert who goes through the whole procedure in lots of detail ..
