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.

"Has not been compromised" may either mean "we have not been cracked AND we haven't permitted a backdoor" OR "we haven't been cracked by an exploit of a weakness"

I say this because remaining silent about an exploit only the NSA could access and hasn't yet could hide in this like legaleze. I have lost all respect for the respect those who ought to protect us have for the standards we are taught make us unique.
We get our iPhones confiscated by the Police by being innocent bystanders filming arrests in the Public Domain - and do THEY break all the rules of Privacy ? ... of course they can and so they did and do.
