    The dictionary look up is very handy, and you might note that for those that don't have a track pad yet... they can curser over the word and either right click or Cntl-Left (one button) click and follow the menu options.. It's nice to have a native application to refer to... I wonder what-where the source of the dictionary-thesaurus is..???

    I was thoroughly amused by the new, high quality voices the other day when I was looking around System Preferences. There are some really good ones, but also some hilarious ones to counteract them.
