We’re uncertain if this is good or bad, but GPS giant Garmin is acquiring the privately held Navigon, makers of the popular Navigon MobileNavigator GPS app for the iPhone. The press release makes all the usual calming sounds, but the fact is that Navigon’s devices and apps were preferred by some over Garmin’s, leading to worry that Navigon’s differentiating features may just disappear. follow link
Type an em-dash on an iPhone
Typography and punctuation geeks rejoice! It's easy to type an em-dash on the iPhone's or iPod touch's virtual keyboard. To do so, tap the .?123 key to switch to the numeric keypad. Then touch and hold on the Hyphen key to reveal a pop-up strip showing an em-dash. Slide to the em-dash and release your finger.
Note that this basic trick works with many other keys on the virtual keyboard.
