I took the time yesterday to watch the guided tour video to Mac OS X Leopard. Besides integrated notes and to do management it now offers also “data detection”. Here is what Apple says about it:
Say you get an email invitation to dinner. What if Mail recognized the address of the restaurant and let you map directions on the web? Or let you click once to add the date to your iCal calendar? With Leopard, it does. Mail even recognizes relative dates (“let’s meet next Tuesday”) and keywords (“dinner tomorrow”), so you can act on information rather than enter it. (Apple – Mac OS X Leopard – Features – Mail)
I look forward to try that feature out. It should become a nice little time saver for daily knowledge work.
