The lack of copy and paste on the iPhone is a topic that has received a ton of attention since the iPhone’s release and probably one that will get even attention more once they finally add it. Imagine, for just one moment, the uproar that would transpire if you didn’t have copy and paste on your Mac. Hard to imagine, I know. Unfortunately, however, that’s exactly what happened to my MacBook Pro the other night.
I can’t remember the exact details, but from my memory, it just flat-out stopped working out of nowhere. One minute I was browsing the web and news feeds, and the next moment, copy and paste were gone. I could select and copy text in Mail, but trying to paste it in OmniWeb resulted in a “Beep”. The worst was this problem continued even after rebooting.
