Following up on the recent release of iPhone 3.1Beta 3, WhenWillApple has posted up a YouTube video (embedded above) showing the new copy/paste functionality for videos.

While all of the 2010 Verizon iPhone/Tablet rumors are still in the air, Verizon has seen a very real loss of profit this last quarter.

Still searching for that perfect online music streaming application for your iPhone? Spotify may be exactly what you are looking for.
Spotify is a online streaming music service that gives you access to over-the-air streaming of their entire music library, as well as playlist access. Where this application has a leg up on the competition is that you'll be able to cache playlists locally on your iPhone while in WiFi areas so that you'll be able to play them back at any time without any data connection. Spotify will be available as a free app download but will only be available to premium customers who pay £9.99 a month for the service.

To celebrate Apple restoring Promo Codes to all App Store apps, Airsource Ltd and Glasshouse Apps are teaming with TiPb to give away 5 free copies of Cellar [$2.99 - iTunes link], their portable, swipeable showcase of what's currently in your cellar or wine rack, and which also includes the Garage feature that lets you store wine that you've decided you might buy again.
The Financial Times is reporting that Apple may be in cahoots with the Big Music record labels, Sony, Warner, Universal, and EMI to create bonus-material laden Apps in an attempt to reignite interest in full album purchases among consumers. This project is said to be code named "cocktail" and would include:
a new interactive booklet, sleeve notes and other interactive features with music downloads
According to developers, Apple has reversed it's previous decision and will now allow Promo Codes to be generated for iTunes App Store apps rated 17+ -- which includes any application that embeds a browser or otherwise allows unfettered access to the internet.
