<p>Digg's Kevin Rose is again peddling his Apple rumours, this time in regards to the upcoming 3.0 preview scheduled for this Tuesday. He was <a https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2008/09/kevin_rose_nails_todays_apple_news_all_known_associates_permanently_buried_by_apple-2/dead on last time around—can he do it again?

Now the good stuff. We’ve had two separate tipsters ping us with the rumours today, which Rose talked about last night during the live Diggnation show at SXSW in Austin.

The breakdown of unconfirmed rumours goes like this:

– Cut and paste in 3.0
– Users magnify or double tap a word to bring up cut and paste
– Pinch “boundaries” to select word(s); Rose called them “copy boundaries”
– Then you get option to cut, paste or copy

Also, the 3.0 update will have enough new features and additions to bring it up to the Palm Pre levels. Whatever Palm Pre has shown us so far, apparently, the iPhone will have too when 3.0 becomes official. That point remains a bit hazy right now, so anyone who was at Diggnation last night who can help elaborate a bit more would be awesome in my book.

Lastly, there will NOT be video, nor will there be MMS. Boo. This last point seems to contradict BGR’s MMS rumor from the other day. [Thanks, Kyle and Abdul!]
