Fantasy Cutting and Pasting on the iPhone

Not that Steve Jobs takes direction well, but he should take a gander at a video suggestion about how Apple could drastically improve the experience on the iPhone.

The target: The inability to cut and paste. Oh, the horror of it all.

Thanks, then, to the creators at lonelysandwich.com, who posted on Vimeo “a mock-up of what it might look like to Copy and Paste on iPhone, using the magnifying loupe and a second-finger tap.”

Cleverly manipulating an Apple ad using that creepy fake-mouth stuff Conan O’Brien always does and with the genius “I love you” ending, it shows what such a feature might look like.

See for yourself:
