Apple It's the most hyped device of the moment, a device that nobody has laid eyes on without an NDA death-grip. While rumour and speculation escalate (sometimes giving way to apathy), little has leaked out of Cupertino. But nobody seems to be asking whether this tablet thing will be successful or not.

"Look at the fuss they made over minor missing iPhone features, because they once cut & pasted something on their WinMo or Symbian phone. The tablet is a gift.


In other words, you've never used your phone for contact or calendar management. Noted.
"

Did I ever use cut/copy and paste on a mobile device prior to the fuss made by iPhone haters? Um.. YES.. at least once, every time I set up a new WinMo device, because the 'tards at Microsoft INSIST on you using it in at least WM2000, 2002 and 2003 in "welcome" app to copy an appointment - and AFAIK you can't skip that (at least I couldn't be arsed to work out how.) After that? Possibly.. not frequently enough to bust a gasket over though.

OH yes, I remember that.. You had to copy/paste that appointment every time the battery died on a Compaq iPaq 3130 (grayscale green-backlit display) with NO flash storage to save data or settings... very useful for playing Solitaire when I was bored, but how I desired that device! (I was little more than a young boy then).
BTW, the oooooold WinMo copy/paste menu is still better than copy/paste possibilities on Symbian S60v5 (have an N97mini).
