    I love iOS's ability to replace a brief phrase/word with a a longer phrase (e.g. omw -> on my way). Any way to do this on the mac? Thanks!

    Shure there is :)

    Go into your System settings > Language & Text > Text

    and make your substitutions there :)

    Hmm it doesn't seem to work in MS Word - does it not apply there? The shortcuts work in safari for instance, but not in Word.
