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.

Making the Case for Print Books in Libraries

Send Article to a Friend

Bexar County, Texas has built a $2.3 million library — with no physical books. Every book available in the BiblioTech is digital, and self-described “grumpy old man” Glenn Fleishman, author of numerous Take Control ebooks himself and publisher of The Magazine, doesn’t like it. Fleishman outlines several problems that library ebooks have when compared with print editions, including accessibility to the poor, destructive DRM, restrictive licensing agreements, and the lack of older or obscure titles in digital formats.Generic Globefollow link

Appreciate the thought that's gone into Glenn Fleishmann's article. I found two little errors, though (a link error and an incorrect book title), and want to let him know. Couldn't find a way to contact him on either The Magazine or on Medium.

10,000 titles? For an entire county? I have at least that many physical books (a large % is textbooks) in my house, and it didn't require any special construction to keep the 90 year old non-building-code floor from collapsing into the basement. Even survived the Nisqually quake.
