    from a comment on ziphone.org

    -- Update 2 (this would be the correct name, not 1.1.4), will bring new features:
    * Support for Flash, files with extension .Docx
    * Adding a mini file manager
    * Adding a "clipboard" to manage copied and pasted text, and send files to the clipboard via email or bluetooth
    * iClips Management (is this the name of apps distributed via iTunes?)
    * A more complete bluetooth manager
    * iChat accessible only via wifi

    -- But it would not bring:
    * Management of MMS
    * Video capture
    * Editing of office files

    perhaps someone dissected the new firmware and found hints of these possible new feautures?

    i'd love to have a proper source of this comment.. the person on ziphone didn't provide his source..

    hey hold on, wouldn't it be sorta simple to make a copy/paste thing for the iPhone/iPod touch?

    i mean if you have a button (like screenshot that's on almost every page you view) where you press it, Copy or Cut or PasteHere option appears like a pop-up, and with copy, it makes a copy of that 'word', stores it in /System/.../Clipboard as a 'note' or .txt file, and with paste, it makes a copy of that 'word', and places it in the space where you can enter stuff. Simple? sorta like, (copy) 'save as .txt file in 'Clipboard', (paste) ''send' to this space' or something?

    come on, someone will be able to make it won't they?

    You would think, wouldn't you? Sadly, no one's done it yet.

    I was just thinking about it a little.. maybe just add a button to Safari.. something similar to what's on my phone called "Text Selection"

    You hit the button, then just drag the cursor on Safari over some text, then the text is selected... when you pick up your finger it has a pop up asking you for a command "Cut or Copy?" then when you double tap in a text box or something it has "Paste?" doesn't sound hard now.. but clipboards are pretty intricate.. to me at least..
