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.

Put rumors of lagging iPhone sales to rest — Apple has announced that it has sold over nine million of the new models in just three days. It’s the biggest iPhone launch yet, nearly doubling iPhone 5 launch weekend sales of five million. Also, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running iOS 7, which is double the number of devices upgraded to iOS 6 over the same period a year ago and perhaps as much as 60 percent of the currently installed base.favicon follow link

The author honestly thinks that Apple has a stake in Pixar and had something to do with Cars 2…I am so sorry I clicked on that link: I now need the industrial size bottle of eye-bleach!
