    For some reason I recall my mac being able to do simple math when typed into a text field using a shortcut key.... however I dont remember how to do it. Basically you would type is 32+62 and then it would automatically change it to the answer. Does anyone know how to do this or am I thinking of something my Vista comp does?

    Typing that into your spotlight search box does it.

    The google search bar text field would do it also (and is useful for unit conversions too)

    Cmd-Space brings up Spotlight, just type it in, no "=" required. If you hit enter, it launches Calculator.

    Used to be Shift-Command-8 to do MATHS :p

    Can also type in : say "say something funny" press shift-command-8 and it would speak it out loud :)

    Not used it in years, might still work.
