Copy and Paste for iPhone tomorrow, advertising the day after that.

According to CrunchGear, a new service called Pastebud (@pastebud)will be released tomorrow enabling copy and paste for iPhone. From what I can tell, it cleverly uses 2 Javascript bookmarks and a web service to store the clipping whilst you switch apps. Cool, and a great temporary fix while Apple figures out how to make this possible internally on the iPhone.

Wait, Pastebud is going to store, at least temporarily, all the little clippings we’re all copying. That means they are going to have access to stats about not only what pages we’re looking at, but the exact phrases we’re interested in. How ’bout that for a targeted marketing opportunity?

That kind of statistical detail is worth a lot to advertisers. I wonder if Pastebud will be account driven? Hmm. In any case, I’ll bet we see a some sort of “most copied” web site or report ala Google’s Zeitgeist which will be interesting, if not profitable for Pastebud.
