Apple CD-ROM Software for Quad-Speed Drives -- Apple released version 5.1.1 of its CD-ROM software last week, primarily to support its new AppleCD 600e quad-speed CD-ROM drive. It also includes support for multisession, CD Plus, and Enhanced CD formats. Weighing in at about 600K binhexed, version 5.1.1 requires System 7.1 or later and works fine with earlier Apple CD-ROM drives. If you have problems installing this software on System 7.1 for use with an internal AppleCD 300, Apple recommends zapping your PRAM (press Command-Option-P-R when restarting your computer), then re-installing.

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.
