Pick an apple! 
 
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.

Poll Preview: Color Me Pretty

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Preview: Color Me Pretty -- Apple last week expanded the color palette of its iBook line to include a graphite-themed consumer laptop (see below), re-opening the topic of Apple's often-brash color selections for its computing products. So, the poll question appearing this week on our home page is: What colors would you like to see Apple use in future Macs? We've chosen a few commonly requested themes, but feel free to contribute other ideas to TidBITS Talk! [GD]
