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.

Send Article to a Friend

Rendezvous with Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.2 -- Many fans of Now Software's Now Up-to-Date & Contact stick with it because of its capability to host calendars and contact information on shared network servers. This feature gets a boost in version 4.5.2 with its support of Rendezvous (also known as Zero Configuration Networking) for more easily connecting devices on a network. The update also adds support for Apple's new Xserve G5, and includes stability enhancements. Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.2 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, and is a 17.6 MB download. [JLC]
