    You could select some text in any native OS X application and selected Summarize under the services menu, and would provide you with a summary of the article, or whatever you were reading. Anybody know what happened to it?

    Go to System Preferences
    Select Keyboard
    Select tab Keyboard Shortcuts
    Select item Services
    Scroll down till you see "Summarize"

    It's there, it just isn't automatically loaded. Select the checkbox and it should appear in your Services menu.

    Yeah, in Snow Leopard not all services are enabled by default. You can now choose which ones to enable, rather than having them all enabled by default.
