comment How can I type or input Unicode characters using a code point on the iPhone?
No worries Philip. Hopefully, this question might spurn others to find an answer or encourage the engineers at Apple to implement it. I the meantime, please don't take offense to me not having marked this as an answer. I'm optimistic that we'll soon find this available via some special setting or key combo. In a very internationalized technology world it would seem only appropriate that this feature exists--even if it is insufficiently documented at the moment. Thank you so much for taking the time to look into this.

comment Microsoft Outlook versus iCal versus Google Calendar
Great workaround! I've been wanting to use Google a bit at work. Seems like a very reasonable solution given the alternative.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing what you decided on. For 8 bucks looks great.

comment What are the risks of connecting a MacBook to an insecure wireless network?
Great question. The more people know the risks, the better.

A good example of when this might bite you: Let's imagine you go to your favorite coffee shop. The owners are so giving that they didn't set a password on their wireless network. This also means that someone using codebutler.com/firesheep might hijack or ruin your account for one of the sites you frequent.

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity! Of course, the link aggregation thing looks cool :)

Thanks for the comment Phillip. Where is it documented that "full Unicode set in the keyboard doesn't exist"? How did you arrive at this conclusion? Much appreciated!

comment How can I type or input Unicode characters using a code point on the iPhone?
Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm hoping there's a different, perhaps more technical way to natively enter via some keyboard combination a hexadecimal or some such format to output characters in the basic multilingual plane, and perhaps in the Unicode code space beyond.
