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.

Send Article to a Friend

Internal Ethernet for PowerBook 1400 -- Dayna Communications, Inc. recently announced plans to ship an internal Ethernet adapter for the PowerBook 1400 series this spring. The 10Base-T adapter will install under the laptop's keyboard rather than in one of the computer's two PC Card slots. Dayna and other manufacturers already offer PowerBook-compatible PC Cards with 10Base-T or 10Base-2 (thin) Ethernet ports, and combination cards with Ethernet ports and data/fax modem features.
