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.

Take a Deep Breath: Word 6.0a

Send Article to a Friend

Take a Deep Breath: Word 6.0a -- Last Friday, Microsoft announced plans to release a free maintenance update for the Macintosh version of Microsoft Word 6.0. The update will allegedly address key performance problems (such as launch time, spell checking, and type-ahead) and restore some features in Word 5.1 that are either absent or difficult to find in Word 6.0.

The update is to be made available by 30-Mar-95, although no methods of distribution have been specified. When thinking about that date, bear in mind that one of the Microsoft business practices being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice is premature announcement of software products, followed by significant slips.
