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.

Cyberduck 4.2

Send Article to a Friend

The Cyberduck team has released version 4.2 of their open source file transfer app. Cyberduck 4.2 improves compatibility with Amazon Web Services, including support for server-side encryption and for Amazon’s US-West storage facility in Oregon. The app can now also better interact with Google’s Cloud Storage service, where Cyberduck supports connecting to multiple projects, configuring the access logs for storage buckets, and using the OAuth 2.0 authentication mechanism. For more traditional connection mechanisms based on SSH, Cyberduck can better interact with OpenSSH. Several bug fixes and performance improvements round out the update. (Free update, 23.6 MB, release notes)

There seems to be a divide-by-two error in the first line of this article: "version 2.1"

Whoops. Maybe it was just half of the app that was updated. :-)

Thanks! I've fixed it.
