Rafe make his point about using the right tool for the job, but in another sense, the use of the cloud for iPhone Cut/Paste is exactly what cloud computing is best at. Preston Monroe is just like any other person with a job that needs to get done. He can’t get it through traditional means and simply finds an alternative.

I love it.
