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.

Roizen Leaves Apple -- Heidi Roizen, Apple's vice president of Developer Relations, has announced she'll be leaving Apple on 19-Feb-97 to commit more time to her family. During the last year, Heidi implemented wide-ranging changes in Apple's developer support and vastly improved communications between Apple and software developers. Her contributions will be missed in the developer community, and we hope Apple is able to make good on her example. [GD]
