Cutting and pasting now a whole lot more cowboy-esque

Having troubles Cutting and pasting on the old Bing app? Well Microsoft seems to have found a rather entertaining way of solving your woes. A lasso.
The new Circle and Search method is specially designed for the touch-friendlyness of the iPad and allows you to circle/lasso/rope words or phrases and launch a search on the selected items.
This, as reported by Slashgear, is a much less troublesome way of selecting text when compared to Apple’s current method. A method which involves the user first pressing down on a text till the selection tool pops up and then dragging and highlighting the required portions. Bing group manager Tony Chor says that the new method saves users up to 9 steps in the selection process.
