And you were listening to a you tube video or something.

If you highlight some text and then hit the control control, a menu comes down and if you select "speech, start speaking"
it will read all the text you highlighted. I use if for a long article so I can listen to it while I do other things.

If there a long long piece of text and your eyes are tired or you have something else to do you
just hit control and speech, start speaking. And someone reads it to you!
It is a niece feature.

It was just sitting on my desk when I noted that it was mirroring the browser window that was open on my desktop computer. I never asked it to do that. Then I left it in my car when I went into the supermarket, only to have my cell phone buzz and give me a text message that my iPad had been "left behind."

Ooo-wee-ooo ... The machines are taking over.
