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.

Intuit has released an R6 update for Quicken 7 and Quicken 7 Deluxe. The update fixes several bugs (see TidBITS-353 and TidBITS-359), and the non-standard ROI (Return On Investment) calculation in the Portfolio window has been replaced by the preferred ROI calculation used in the Investment Performance report. In addition, Q7 users may wish to know that Connectix's Speed Doubler can significantly speed the opening of Register windows, and indexing error warnings can sometimes be avoided by increasing Quicken's memory allocation (an additional 1 MB worked for me).
