Hint: Create new mail or mail note with selected text
At "Apple's Snow Leopard Refined..." site, you can find shortly after the middle the paragraph "The right service at the right time" with an illustration: A contextual menu (Service) of a selected text in Safari, "New Note With Selection". This automatic instantly produces a brand new and screaming yellow mail note containing the selected text, neatly filled out with subject (beginning of the text), sender, date and time. You can access services with a right click of your mouse or Control-click of your trackpad.
Here is a simple step-by-step guide on how to have this very practical contextual menue entry that should work with any program where you can select text:
Those who want an advanced feature, like having such notes right on their iPhone, repeat the last paragraph and type in Automator their own mail address in the "To:" field (may use address book) and save the service as "Mail Selection To Me" eg. Those mail actions just require the subject to be filled out (but that can also be automatically initiated by filling out the subject line in Automator's "New Mail Message" field, but the subject is then always the same) and a click on "Send".
Unfortunately, this approach has no mini-icon in the contextual menue (as seen at Apple's German-language "Refinements" site, get over), and I have no idea if it worked even under 10.5.x (Leopard).
