Handspring Skirts the Edge with New Handheld -- Handspring has announced what is sure to become the "must-have" accessory to Apple's PowerBook G4 Titanium: the Visor Edge, an anodized aluminum handheld that's just .44 inches thick. The Visor Edge runs Palm OS 3.5, comes with 8 MB of memory, sports the high-contrast grayscale screen found in current models, and includes a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Unlike other Visors, the Edge does not have a built-in Springboard expansion slot; to compensate, each Edge includes a snap-on Detachable Springboard Slot that can utilize any Springboard module. The Visor Edge costs $400 and should be shipping by the end of the month in metallic silver, red, and blue colors. [JLC]
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.
