    Spotlight calc (A Leopard tip)
    I found this neat trick in Spotlight in Leopard.
    I'm always having to do simple calculations. Now I just fire up spotlight cmd+space type in my sums using +,-,*,/ keys and such and, the answers pop up in the spotlight window... That's neat

    It's considered a "tip" now to post advertised features?
