FINDING PEOPLE'S PHONE NUMBERS

Spotlight is great for finding people on your Mac, because it'll search through your email, attachments, bookmarks, Address Book, iCal calendars—you name it. When it comes to finding phone numbers in your Address Book, it totally rocks because once you find the number, you can go to town (so to speak). For example, if you want to call a friend or business associate, rather than launch Address Book, just type their name in Spotlight. When their contact appears, don't launch Address Book. Instead, just click on their name, then press the Right Arrow key on your keyboard to show the info on this contact. Then click directly on their phone number and it will appear so huge on your screen that senior citizens on a passing cruise ship will be able to read it clearly.
