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.

Macworld Expo SF Moving to Austin

Send Article to a Friend

Macworld Expo SF Moving to Austin -- IDG Expo Management announced today that the January Macworld Expo, long a fixture in San Francisco's Moscone Center, will be moving to an as-yet-undisclosed location in Austin, Texas. As with the recent controversial move of Macworld Expo Boston to New York, IDG Expo Management pointed to the increasing popularity of the Macintosh industry and said that while Moscone Center was expected to be too small for the next Macworld Expo, "everything is bigger in Texas." Apple interim CEO Steve Jobs, while noting that the move brings Macintosh industry executives closer to sources of cheap Mexican labor, commented in an offhand way that "San Francisco is not a big Macintosh town."
