I write for a living, so words are very important to me. I’ve been using the Dictionary application and widget that come with Mac OS X since they were introduced years ago. In fact, I don’t think I’ve opened a printed dictionary or thesaurus since I first opened the Dictionary application. (And I know I’m not the only one.)

So you can imagine how tickled I was when I learned that the Dictionary application had been expanded and improved to include two new resources: an Apple dictionary and access to Wikipedia. Finally, I can get those Apple terms right without searching through Apple’s Style Guide. And Wikipedia without launching a browser—what else could a writer want? (We all know how just opening a browser can suck valuable time from your life.)
