Delightful catch by Chris Grande. Here’s Paul Thurrott in July 2007, regarding the iPhone:
And what’s up with the lack of cut/copy and paste? This is a
basic OS feature that Apple included in the first Mac OS almost 25
years ago. It’s inexplicably missing from the iPhone,
unavailable in any application or the wider system itself. Unreal.
And here’s Paul Thurrott two days ago, in a post titled “I Love Windows Phone”:
The multitasking is limited. Users will only be able to get apps
from the Marketplace, and not from third parties. Gasp! Is it true
that there’s no copy and paste?
No matter. Windows Phone combines those very few things that were
right about Windows Mobile — primarily some business
functionality — with a much wider set of new functionality that
is exciting in both scope and possibility.
