Connectix and America Online have announced a joint project to bring rudimentary videoconferencing to AOL users. AOL will begin selling the Connectix Color QuickCam (now available for both Macintosh and Windows) in its online store, and Connectix will implement technology to allow AOL users to exchange still images and even video while communicating online. Software to enable these features is expected later this year. [MHA]
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.
