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.

David Pogue Leaves the New York Times for Yahoo

Send Article to a Friend

After 13 years of writing about technology for the New York Times, David Pogue is moving on to Yahoo, where he’ll be building and writing for a new consumer-technology site. He’s keeping his Missing Manual books, his NOVA specials on PBS, his stories on CBS Sunday Morning, and his column with Scientific American. Sleep is clearly not involved, but we’re actually not surprised — in recent years, a number of our generation of technology writers have moved into higher level publishing work, as we did with Take Control.favicon follow link

Ah, just when we really needed him! Looking at the pathetic reviews of the new iPhone and iOS, we see the usual failure to understand the remarkable software (and hardware) achievements in them. The problem now is, When is the first piece by him going to turn up in Yahoo?
