Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

If you have a Thunderbolt-equipped Mac or a Thunderbolt Display, you’ll want to install Apple’s just-released Thunderbolt Software Update, available for both Mac OS X 10.7 Lion (60.3 MB) and 10.6 Snow Leopard (65.5 MB). Apple says it provides support for the Thunderbolt Display and bug fixes for Thunderbolt devices. Also new is the Thunderbolt Display Firmware Update (923 KB), which improves the stability of the Thunderbolt Display. This last update comes in the form of an updater application that will be installed in /Applications/Utilities and will be launched automatically. (Free)

The updates have not fixed all the problems with Thunderport on the new MacMinis. Most of the 11 we purchased still do not connect to the monitor in the thunderport when they wake from sleep. Monitors in the HDMI port work as expected.

This seems to have fixed the flicker on my 2011 MacBook Air internal display.
