Man who invented 'cut, copy and paste' dies at 74


The computer scientist who invented the widely relied on "cut, copy and paste" command died this week at the age of 74.

Larry Tesler invented the concept during his time at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center in the 1970s. 

In a tribute on Twitter, the firm wrote: "Your workday is easier thanks to his revolutionary ideas."

After his stint at Xerox, he worked for Apple and was deeply involved in the user interface design of a precursor to the iPhone.
