Keyboard shortcut to start application/open file in Finder

If you're using Quicksilver, you won't need this much, except occasionally
when Quicksilver quits unexpectedly.

To open a file or start an application, you may be tempted to hit
the enter key. Sadly, this would let you modify the application/file
name instead of starting or opening it.

To open a file or launch an application in Finder, you can either hit
apple - O or apple - down arrow.

What if you want to open a file using some other application other than
the default? See the related post: The QuickSilver Files: Grabbing the Universe

My headphone jack isn't working properly. How long would it probably take if I had apple repairs my 8gb 3rd gen ipod touch?

Do you know any way to get it repair quicker than normal, because I use my ipod touch as a communication device as I'm non-verbal. I don't have any other communication devices to use while its being repaired.

Thanks for this, it's such an unintuitive command.
