Have yet to find a use for it
Authored by: escoles on Sep 01, '05 09:13:21PM

Really, all that thing does is take up space. As I pull it down right now, there's not a single thing on it that's actually accessible -- all actual entries are grayed. Even stuff that might conceivably be useful, like Grab: Grayed.

Useless. A waste of cycles, both on the system and in my brain.

I have, but infrequently...

For many of the Services to become available, you must first select something within the application you're using. For example, select some text and you'll be able to make a new sticky from it; create a TextEdit document with it; look it up in the dictionary; send it via e-mail; have the text spoken to you; summarize it; search for the string with Spotlight. Some of the services seem trivial perhaps, but they do function according to the context of your selection.
