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.

Security Update 2003-03-03

Send Article to a Friend

Security Update 2003-03-03 -- In an effort to stay up to date with security improvements on the Unix front, Apple has also released Security Update 2003-03-03, which provides a new version of sendmail that closes a hole which could allow a cracker access to the system. It wasn't a serious problem for most Mac users, since sendmail is off by default. Also updated was OpenSSL, the new version of which provides improved data confidentiality. Since the sendmail problem affects Mac OS X 10.1.5 as well as 10.2.4, there's a variant of the update for those Mac OS X users who haven't updated to Jaguar. The Jaguar version of the update is a 1.7 MB download; the 10.1.5 version is a 705K download. [ACE]
