MAC Hint – No Need To Open Calculator.app

Next time you need to add up the shipping and handling charge on ebay instead of running over to the applications folder and finding calculator.app do the math in the spotlight menu bar. In the new version of spotlight, that came with Leopard, you can do a host of math problems right in the menu bar.
Evoke Spotlight from the menu bar and type out the expression (math problem) you want . For our ebay example type in 9.95 + 15.99 and here is what you will see.
