Speed Doubler 8.1.2 Update Nabs Bugs -- Connectix has released Speed Doubler 8.1.2, which fixes bugs and improves compatibility. The Faster File Copying feature now works from a locked startup volume, cleans up spring-loaded folders properly, and doesn't crash if a copy window is placed off-screen, among other changes. The update also fixes a problem under Mac OS 8.5 that caused a crash when clicking OK or Cancel in the Copy Agent schedule configuration dialog. Connectix recommends that all Speed Doubler 8 users upgrade to 8.1.2, which is available as a free 516K download. [JLC]
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.
