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.

Free Macworld Expo Exhibit Passes

Send Article to a Friend

Free Macworld Expo Exhibit Passes -- Speaking of Peachpit Press, Kim Lombardi there tells me that they have stacks of free passes to the show floor of the upcoming Macworld Expo in New York City that they can mail out to anyone who wants one. If a free pass will help convince you stop in and check out what's happening at Macworld Expo (such as one of my open talks - we'll publish a list of them next week), send an email message to <macworldny@peachpit.com> with your snail mail address. You'll receive a postcard you can bring to the Javits Convention Center to get in free. Obviously, with only two weeks before the show, you'll want to do this right away to allow enough time for the postcard to arrive. [ACE]
