Who needs cut and paste on a mobile device when your primary use cases have nothing to do with text entry?

As M says, they sucked it up and implemented something, purely because it was such a talking point.

They did the same thing with Spaces under Mac OS X, which also sucks as a result. It's a shitty compromise.

Totally agreed on the failure of people to be able to articulate why they prefer a usable thing to a less usable thing.

Things that aren't immediately usable are perceived as frustrating/confusing/annoying, and people can sometimes articulate why, because they can point to whatever is frustrating/confusing/annoying.

Usability is all about not being in the way, and things that don't get in people's way are invisible to them.

So things that are usable are just "ahh, I like it!"
