Dave Peltier <email@example.com> wrote to tell us that the AudioVision adapter cable, necessary to connect a standard Mac monitor cable to a Power Mac's HDI-45 video port, is not included with every Power Mac as we stated in TidBITS #217. Some checking has revealed that the adapter is included with the Power Macintosh 6100, since that machine has only the single HDI-45 AudioVision video port. The 7100 and 8100 models' bundled video card offers a standard DB-15 video port, so the adapter is unnecessary for most users.
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.
