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.

New Apple Storefronts Perform

Send Article to a Friend

New Apple Storefronts Perform -- Slightly lost within last week's hardware announcements were the openings of the Apple Store for Education and the Apple Store UK, the first step in making the Apple Store available to users in Sweden, Holland, France, Germany, Australia, and Japan. It's great to see Apple finally opening up online ordering to the education community and to international Macintosh users. Success came quickly to the Apple Store for Education, as it received over $1 million in orders during its first 24 hours of business. Apple also noted that thanks to the new PowerBook G3s, the main Apple Store received a record $1.9 million in orders in a single 24-hour period. [ACE]
