    What if your iPhone is on the other side of the house, the same side of the house a violent, psychopathic intruder whistling loudly and eerily just broke into? You would love to call 911, but you can't, because highlighting 911 and right-clicking doesn't give you the option to call it on OS X Yosemite.

    With Continuity Keypad, now you can.

    It is recommended you lower the volume on your Mac, so that the violent, psychopathic intruder whistling loudly and eerily can't hear you calling the cops.

    You're screwed if the intruder gets a hold of your phone.

    Hey Napkin Bonelover. You'd never break into any ones home in the first place. That would require you leaving this forum

    You should turn off autocorrect or proofread before you post.

    It's fun to watch people self-destruct.
