Copy & Paste Using iCopy for iPhone and iPod Touch

While an official implementation of Copy & Paste is yet to be seen on the iPhone, Preston Monroe has come up with a fairly useful workaround to this conundrum. Using a bookmarklet approach, iCopy can copy text from a web page into a cookie which can then be pasted into another web page or even into a new email. It works pretty well for the most part, but it's not perfect. Obviously the trick only works in Safari and its integrated Mail app, but at least it's a start.

Now someone needs to figure out how to do something like this and let us install it with installer app so it can run smoother and not take as long.
