The first item on David Pogue’s list of tech tips every computer user should know on his New York Times weblog:
You can double-click a word to highlight it in any document, e-mail or Web page.
Er, except for on The New York Times website, which still offers the incredibly annoying “feature” of opening a new window with the definition of any double-clicked word. (Not on the blog pages, thankfully.)
I did learn a couple of things though. Somehow I never knew that the space bar scrolls a screen downward or that a double space bar hit punctuates a sentence on the iPhone.
