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.

This month's session, by popular demand, was a roundtable about supporting Macs in a Windows-heavy world, and the session video is online if you'd like to watch it.

We talked about the sharp rise in Mac market share on college campuses and using Entourage as an effective client in a Microsoft Exchange environment, but one of the things that impressed me most was a Cornell staffer's demonstration of using Apple's Workgroup Manager application to manage Active Directory accounts in a Windows Server 2003 environment. Shukwit.com has a variety of scripts useful for integrating Mac OS X and Active Directory.
