Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

MacSpeech Acquired by Nuance

MacSpeech has been acquired by Nuance, the firm from which MacSpeech licensed the voice-recognition engine that powers MacSpeech Dictate. MacSpeech had built its own interface and processing wrapper around the engine, which was somewhat different and not yet as full featured as Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Nuance also offers a set of iPhone apps.Generic Globefollow link

Maybe they won't have to sell MacSpeech for twice what Nuance charges for Dragon Naturally Speaking to depreciate the licensing fee. Or is MacSpeech the high end version thereof? It has never been clear while Nuance needs to improve its customer service.
