Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

Oral Folk Tales of Mac History

Oral Folk Tales of Mac History -- Stories of famous Mac people, the reality distortion field, and years of sleeplessness are now available in oral form from Derek Warren. At Macintosh Folklore Radio, Warren is reading the snippets that are part of Mac designer Andy Hertzfeld's Folklore.org that represents part of the book Hertzfeld compiled into Revolution in the Valley. I reviewed that charming, picaresque tale for TidBITS last year (see "Continuous Revolution").

Warren is performing these episodes under terms of the Creative Commons license that Hertzfeld applied to his writing (though Warren still asked permission). The episodes can be downloaded as podcasts from the iTunes Music Store, too. It's ironic, of course, that a site that purports to tell the true story is called Folklore.org, that a written history is being turned into "oral folklore," and that the voice reading the stories isn't that of the first-person author who wrote them as "folklore."
