As Apple Turns -- With the dense fog of rumors that have cloaked Apple in the past few weeks, you might wonder where our coverage of that fog has been.

Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher
If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.
