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.

Take Control News/25-Apr-05

We're completely on track to release all four of our Tiger titles simultaneously with Tiger itself, and we've come up with yet another reason to upgrade - by getting one of the ebooks for free.

<http://www.takecontrolbooks.com/news/>

"Take Control of Upgrading to Tiger" Free with Tiger Purchase -- It's a safe bet that almost everyone who buys "Take Control of Upgrading to Tiger" will also be ordering Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger itself. So why not get the ebook for free? All you have to do is pre-order the ebook, click the Check for Updates button in your pre-order copy to find a coupon code worth $5 off at Small Dog Electronics, and then use the coupon when you buy Tiger from Small Dog. They'll even throw in some Vermont maple syrup (in a bottle, presumably)!
