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.

Apple Discloses, Limits .Mac Bandwidth Transfers -- Apple's .Mac service has played it coy for years about how much bandwidth transfer (bytes to and from your Web pages and other parts of your account) are included with your annual $100 fee. I've asked Apple directly about it before and some folks have tested it, and it appears to be... well, it varies based on velocity of downloads, kind of material, etc.

No more. Now the bandwidth limits are officially 3 GB per month with a regular subscription and 9 GB a month if you pay the extra $50 per year for a full 1 GB of online storage. [GF]
