Video of Smart-Sensing vs Copy and Paste in Windows Phone 7

 

Here’s short demo video of Microsoft’s Smart-Sensing technology vs traditional copy & paste in Windows Phone 7. This looks nice and all (somewhat similar to what’s on the iPhone..).. but I still want real copy/paste Microsoft. The latest we have heard is that work is being done and the feature should hopefully be available in one of the first updates.

Source: Microsoft I uploaded the video to YouTube for those who don’t want to create an account on MS’s site.

    We get it…you want cut and paste, ad nauseum. Quit with the old lady cries for once. This is very cool technology but seems like you and other die hards out there are sitting there with your arms crossed saying, “yeah, but where’s cut and paste?” Just relax about it already.

    I hear ya. The “cut and paste” barking has gotten overused. Everyone, Microsoft included, is looking into getting cut and paste implemented. The masses have been heard so there is no need to spend time dwelling on its initial omission when we can be singing the praises of the cool feature that smart-sensing is.

    This seems more like what Apple calls ‘Data Detectors’, which was developed in the 1990′s by the Advanced Technology Group (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Technology_Group), and used in the Newton and in Mac OS 8, way back. It returned partially in the iPhone and in Mac OS X 10.5 in 1997. From there Apple is extending the range of usages.

    This has nothing to do with cut&paste!
