    I used to use the dictionary a lot where you could press cmd + crtl + shift + d and hover your mouse above some text. Has this gone now in Lion or can it be turned on somewhere?

    It is now a double tap with three fingers on trackpad, but does not continuously update like the old command.

    What about for MagicMouse

    Shame it doesn't auto update, that was always impressive.

    I can't activate it with my magic mouse. My taps either activate the zoom function or mission control. Sorry.

    Looks like you can just do a right click/look up on each word and it brings up dictionary, thesaurus, Apple and Wikipedia.

    I liked the quicker feature of scanning over words. Still good though.
