This is so flipping clever, I had to make my own post about it! Evan Kline at 40Tech gives a little efficiency tip for Mac OSX users that I was completely unaware of. If you want to create a quick, simple note about something, simply select / highlight the text you want and then drag it onto your desktop! The text is transformed into a text note, which you can then refer back to as needed. It works from any app. Great for quick, simple information transfer – like an address from an email or a sentence from a web page. Nice one, Evan!
