Online Service Brings Copy/Paste to Safari, Mail

Up to now, any attempts to implement true copy and paste on the iPhone have involved installing apps, often requiring a jailbroken phone in the process.

Pastebud has a better idea.  An app-free idea, to be precise.

Using a combination of web services and Javascript bookmarks — thus performing an end run on the App Store's terms entirely — Pastebud concentrates on the programs that need copy/paste the most: Safari and Mail.  Using a pair of Safari bookmarks, Pastebud prepares and loads the page you are viewing, ready to select text at
the touch of a finger. From there, you can copy any text you want and
create a new mail message with that text in it. In addition to that,
you will be able to copy and paste in the text field of a different web

Pastebud is set to launch Friday, December the 12th; until then, the website link will redirect you to their page on Twitter.

This is not a first attempt at copy and paste, check here and here.
