Here’s a neat trick that I am sure many of you have figured out, but that I just discovered Friday night. If you have [TouchPad](http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/touchpad/id297623931?mt=8) on your iOS device (probably other apps allow this as well) you can use the `dictation` key in iOS to dictate text into your Mac.
