My colleague the other day thought of contacting a long-lost friend. So she thought of using the web to see what turns up. A search through Google turns up nothing. Then she had an idea. Give the name in Chinese:
Amazing. She found her friend in 0.16 seconds. It was spot on.
Why is Google so smart? Why is the Mac so smart? With OS X, you can enter Chinese characters (or any other language) into any application. The functionality is built right in. There's no need for a "Chinese Language Kit", like in the OS 7/8/9 days. Life is sweeter with OS X.
