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.

Security Update 2011-005

Send Article to a Friend

In light of the recent security breach at certificate authority DigiNotar, Security Update 2011-005 removes DigiNotar from the list of trusted root certificates and from the list of Extended Validation (EV) certificate authorities, and configures default system trust settings so that DigiNotar’s certificates, including those issued by other authorities, are not trusted (for more info, see the links in "Firefox 6.0.2," 8 September 2011). The release is available for both Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and 10.7 Lion, and it updates both Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server. (Free, 869 KB for Snow Leopard, 15.59 MB for Lion, release notes)

It's a shame they have already started leaving Leopard behind.

Yes, but since Mozilla is still releasing these type of security updates to FF 3.6, I really don't need Apple to do so.
