Sugar HQ is now using iCal more than ever, so it's totally out of selfishness that I bring you today's tip. Instead of starting up iCal to view your appointments, you can use Cover Flow! Cover Flow is one of my favorite ways to browse music and photos and search for files. Mostly 'cause I just like the sleek scrolly-ness of it.
A great tip I found on Tekzilla suggests typing "kind:ical" (without quotation marks) into Spotlight, then click "show all." You'll then get a popup Finder window that will list all your iCal events. From there, it's as easy as clicking "Cover Flow" (or the Cover Flow icon) at the top of the nav bar, and you're all set. It's super fast, and I won't have to wait for my events to load every time I open iCal. Sweet.
Maybe you know everything that Spotlight does already, and maybe you've never really thought about the little magnifying glass icon in the top right hand corner of your Mac's screen.
If you're in the latter category, then I have some tips that will make your life easier. You may use it most often in the search bar of your browser window or to hunt down stuff in iTunes, but these tips explore the offline applications of this handy little tool (for those of you who have updated to Leopard).
Click on the Spotlight icon for:
- A Dictionary: Don't waste your time looking for a website to do it for you — just open spotlight, type in "lugubrious," and hit enter. Spotlight activates the Dictionary application and provides you with the definition of the word and its etymology.
- A Calculator: Just type the math problem into Spotlight and the calculation is performed and displayed in the window.
