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.

Frank Imburgia probably didn't anticipate a flood of calls from TidBITS readers when he gave us his office phone number for T-shirt inquiries (see TidBITS-291). The company he works for (which has nothing to do with the T-shirts, it seems) was caught by surprise. Instead of calling Frank at the Yankee Group, call him at home at 617/630-9828. (Keep in mind time zone differences; Frank's in Massachusetts, in the Eastern U.S. time zone, four hours behind Greenwich Mean until daylight saving time ends.) [MHA]
