16 iOS Keyboard Shortcuts for iPhone » WebNots
5. Typing Single Numbers and Symbols Quickly

To enter a single number, you can tap the number icon on the keyboard to switch to the numeric keyboard with punctuation symbols. However, if you’re in a hurry, you can save some time by pressing and holding the 123 key and swiping to the number you wish to type. After the number is inserted the keyboard will then automatically switch back to the alphabet keyboard saving your time. The same trick works for typing capital letters using shift (up arrow) key and typing symbols using #+= key.

The New MacBook Air Has a Looming Reliability Issue
The MacBook Air is held in high regard for being a well-built laptop that lasts forever. And since the Air has lasted so long, many users (including most of my relatives) have held onto their older models. These systems still work, but they’re finally starting to show their age, leaving their owners looking for a new laptop.

bash - How do I reload .inputrc? - Super User |
Interesting, but doesn't work for me.
By default, C-x C-r is bound to re-read-init-file.

See the Bash Reference Manual for explanation.

Maybe this does:

How to type accents, emoji, and symbols on your Mac - Apple Support |

iOS 8 Third-Party Keyboards Explained and Reviewed
It’s free. On Android, SwiftKey makes money by selling themes and other features through in-app purchases. But those have not arrived on iOS yet. There has also been talk of offering advertisements on the keyboard, though that is expressly forbidden by Apple’s App Store guidelines. In any case, I’m unconvinced by these business models, and I’m less trustful of companies that don’t seem to have a clear, dependable revenue stream.

Not an option for everyone but exactly one of the reasons I jailbreak my phones. Firewall IP does exactly this, showing you exactly where your apps are trying to call out to. Quite scary finding just how many places apps are making connections to behind the scenes.

Alternative solution using AppleScript (requires root access to enable technology for "assistive devices"):

tell application "System Events"
if not UI elements enabled then
set UI elements enabled to true
end if
end tell

--Enable/Disable "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" option in Keyboard & Mouse Preference pane and close System Preferences
tell application "System Events"
tell application "System Preferences"
reveal anchor "keyboardTab" of pane ""
end tell
click checkbox 1 of tab group 1 of window 1 of application process "System Preferences"
end tell
if application "System Preferences" is running then
tell application "System Preferences" to quit
end if

Also (helpfully) sends you to for a longer list of compose key sequences.

It's just a shame that the author tries to insert his personal en-dash-politics into the beginning of the article; that usage of the 'en' dash is contrary to every style guide in existence (probably not even a hyperbole) and makes Nathaniel Hawthorne sad.
