I was recently given a Mac Pro (which I absolutely LOVE).  iphoto and Kindle both need to be updated however because they are under the previous owners Apple ID I have no idea how to do it w/out contacting the previous owner?

The apps are licensed for only computers owned by the previous owner.  You should delete them from your computer.  Find each app in Launch Pad, click and hold on it until it wiggles and an "X" appears next to it, then click the "X".
You can then purchase any you need with your account.  Kindle is free, iPhoto is only $14.99
