OSX has long had this data recognition thang, where if you're looking at an email or something and there's an email address, or a URL, or even a physical address or phone number it'll offer you a drop down (if you move over the data element) and offer you services for that thing. Like, put the address/hone number into your contact book, email/copy the address of a person, launch Safari from the URL. (On the iPhone it will dial the phone number for you for example)

Today I received an email from a friend where he told me that something would occur "lunedi evening" - Italian for Monday, but at that moment I could not remember if it was Spanish, French or what... so I ran my mouse over it (to copy and paste into FreeTranslation.com) when a drop down appeared... it said, "Show date in iCal" ... I did it, and it correctly highlighted this coming Monday!

Not much to write home about, but a nice Easter Egg anyway.

Have a great Friday,
