Poll Results: I Go, You Go, We All Go Expo -- Macworld Expo in New York City starts this week, but the results of last week's poll indicate most of you probably won't be there. Fully 50 percent of the respondents said they have never attended a Macworld Expo, and 22 percent attend less than once per year. Conversely, on average 24 percent of respondents attend a Macworld Expo once per year, 2 percent attend Macworld Expos twice per year, and a vanishing 1 percent go more than twice per year. The poll results prompted discussion on TidBITS Talk about why people don't attend (mostly due to travel, although half of the pre-registered Macworld attendees come from outside New York) and wondering about the utility of a show like Macworld Expo in this age of the Internet.

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.
