iCopy brings rudimentary copy and paste to iPhone Safari

Everybody wants copy and paste on the iPhone, but this seemingly obvious computing functionality has been unaccountably missing since the iPhone shipped. Unlike the rest of us however, Preston Monroe decided to do something and produced iCopy, a javascript bookmarklet that lets you copy and paste text and URLs between browser windows in Mobile Safari and even email text or URLs. Basically it works by adding the selected text to a URL which is sent over the internet, so it's definitely not secure. But it nonetheless looks like it could be handy in a pinch.

iCopy is free and available from Preston's site.
