iPhone OS 3.0 to Include Copy-and-Paste Feature: Digg Founder
The iPhone OS 3.0, which Apple is previewing this week, will include a new copy-and-paste feature, according to Digg.com founder Kevin Rose, who spilled the beans at the South By Southwest 2009 conference in Austin, Texas. While such rumors can be taken with a grain of salt, Apple's new iPhone operating system has drawn a lot of speculation over the past few weeks.Apple iPhone OS 3.0 will include a copy-and-paste feature, according to Digg.com founder Kevin Rose during a Q&A session at the South By Southwest 2009 conference in Austin, Texas. Rose, who apparently got the information from a "friend who was right before," said that copy-and-paste will be revealed as part of the iPhone OS 3.0 release on March 17, and explained how it functioned. But Rose didn't say who the friend was, or how they came across the information.
"The way it works is that you double-click on the word, like you double-tap on the word, and it brings up kind of like the magnifying glass a little bit?" Rose told the audience. "And it has two quotes on the end, and you drag the quotes around the copy that you want to copy and paste - and you go out or back, and you can do copy, paste or cut."
