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.

Salling Clicker 2.1 Adds Symbian Support -- Salling Software has released Salling Clicker 2.1, adding support for Bluetooth-enabled smart phones that run the Symbian operating system (see "Salling Clicker in Action" in TidBITS-694). Salling Clicker 2.1 is now compatible with the Sony Ericsson P800 and P900, Nokia 3650, 6600, and N-Gage, and the Siemens SX1. On some models, the new version of the remote-control software displays iTunes album artwork on the phone's screen for the current playing song; pen-based phones can control the cursor on your Mac. With version 2.1, Salling has also rolled-in support for Bluetooth-enabled Palm OS devices (which were previously run by a separate version of Salling Clicker). The update is a 4.2 MB download, requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later, and is free for existing customers; a new license costs $20. [JLC]
