So I'm ready for the iPhone, even if it's missing critical features.
How the #$!$# can I live without cut, copy and paste? The Palm has that. Every machine I've used in decades had it. It's absurd that there's still no CCP in iPhone 2.
I don't believe it's that hard to do. Good enough is a lot better than nothing.
One clue is a patent application from months ago:
Apple Depicts Advanced Multitouch Gesturing Control Panel in Mac OS X - Mac ForumsCould CCP be tied up in a patent battle somewhere? Is that why Apple won't show it?
...editing operations such as Copy, Cut, Paste, Undo, Select All, Tab, and Cancel using gestures based on your Thumb and Two Fingers...
Anyone have another theory? I'm all eyes.
It's scary insane not to have this functionality yet ...
