I was thinking this morning about the little things in Mac OS X that make me smile. For example, someone had sent me a link to an interesting photo on a web page that I decided that I wanted to keep. In Safari, I simply CTRL-clicked on the picture and chose “Add image to iPhoto library.” No fuss beyond that. It’s just there next time I go to iPhoto.
Even though it’s not new, I like the iChat alert in Mail.app. As I’m going through my mail, I can see which of my coworkers are online at the moment. Often I choose to IM them to answer a quick question. It’s a handy feature.
The bulk of my SMS messages are actually sent via Address Book. I simply activate the Bluetooth button in AB, then use the “SMS message” option in the dropdown menu for the mobile phone number. Address Book gives me a much faster way to type my note, then sends it through my SE T637 phone.
There are dozens of these gems in Mac OS X. I was wondering if you’d mind sharing your favorites in the talkbacks below.
