Did you know that iChat and iCal work very well together? If you’re having a conversation in iChat and you or anyone else mentions a date or a day, you can hover over that mentioned date/day and add an iCal event directly from iChat without ever launching iCal! Try it out yourself with any iChat conversation, just throw in a day and see how well it works, it’s quite impressive.

OS X Daily editor Ryan pointed this out to me via Twitter a couple weeks ago, and I was surprised to learn just how well it worked. It’s now part of my daily workflow, it is very handy. Thanks Ryan!
