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.

SpamSieve 2.9.9

Send Article to a Friend

C-Command Software has updated SpamSieve to version 2.9.9 with added compatibility for the golden master of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, which was recently released to developers and will ultimately be the build that gets released to the public. C-Command recommends that you update to SpamSieve 2.9.9 before installing Mavericks, but if OS X 10.9 is already installed then you should choose SpamSieve > Install Apple Mail Plug-In. The update also adds a Apple Mail — Server Junk Mailbox script, fixes some problems where the Open Window command in Apple Mail wasn’t available, adds the capability to repair ownership and permissions of SpamSieve and Apple Mail preferences, and makes improvements to SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy.
