Kevin Rose Says Copy and Paste is in iPhone OS 3.0

Kevin Rose Says Copy and Paste is in iPhone OS 3.0

Posted March 15, 2009 at 2:37pm by iClarified · 9843 views
Kevin Rose leaked some information about iPhone OS 3.0 during the live Diggnation show at SXSW in Austin last night.

According to Gizmodo, Rose revealed the following information:
- Cut and paste in 3.0
- Users magnify or double tap a word to bring up cut and paste
- Pinch "boundaries" to select word(s); Rose called them "copy boundaries"
- Then you get option to cut, paste or copy

Also, the 3.0 update will have enough new features and additions to bring it up to the Palm Pre levels. Whatever Palm Pre has shown us so far, apparently, the iPhone will have too when 3.0 becomes official. That point remains a bit hazy right now

Rose also said that MMS and video recording would not be present in this release nor will background processes be allowed.

it's not apple but at@t that is not allowing mms in the united states in portugal the iphone has it and they have a offical mms app in the apple app store for it so don't blame apple blame at@t they're playing the blame game.

Plus it's all down to bandwith at@t can't handle 3g speed of the iphones and mms pictures using their network . that's why a few countries in europe and asia have mms on ther iphones and we don't we should start a angry petetion for mms on our iphones or sue at@t for lack of serves since all their other phones they carry have mms.

Are you kidding? Did you get pasted apples in your brain when smoking too much pot last night? Portugal got MMS - that's it. No other country here in Europe. Apple is just too stupid to implement it. They could have easily included it. It allowes more services and therefore more charges. AT&T would really like to gain more money. T-Mobile supports MMS for the last 1000 years in Austria, Germany, Netherlands , Czech, Slovakia and some more countries. They would have used it for their customer base. That is for sure. This is just empresarial bullshit. Blaming AT&T only reveals how stupid you gotta be. Just shut up and smoke more pot.

What a load of the proverbial.... Out of everything the phone can and should do, copy and paste is not something that is hugely needed, a nice to have but not really needed. Come on Apple give us what other phones can do and so can this with 3rd party apps. MMS, proper Bluetooth, video recording, and even the basic forwarding text message (which I cannot believe the networks aren’t bending their arms about as it’s a sale for everyone sent, and we all like to forward jokes :-) )
