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 Pocket Show Guide Changed

Macworld Expo Pocket Show Guide Changed -- Last week, in "Macworld NYC 2000 Events," I recommended that users of Palm OS-based handhelds download a copy of Palmtop Publishing's Macworld Expo Pocket Show Guide last week. Unfortunately, in the short time between when I downloaded the guide and when that article was published, Palmtop Publishing had to change the guide entirely; it's now the Macworld City Guide and features hotel, restaurant, museum, and shopping information. Details about Macworld Expo itself are limited to party schedules and events at the Mac Publishing booth; the useful exhibitor lists and session schedules are sadly no longer present. [ACE]
