Mac OS X Public Beta Set for 13-Sep-00 -- At last week's Seybold Seminars in San Francisco, Apple iCEO Steve Jobs announced the company would release its long-awaited public beta version of Mac OS X on 13-Sep-00. The announcement lets Apple fulfill its promise to get the public beta out in "Summer 2000," as the season ends in the northern hemisphere about a week later. The full launch of the software is slated for January of 2001. Jobs didn't specify whether the beta software would be available for a free (but extremely large) download, or whether it would be sold to users. [MHA]
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.
