Q | When Larry Tesler joined Apple in 1980 from the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, he brought with him two new commands he developed for manipulating text: "Cut" and "paste."

[you bet]

Aside: Apple Powerbook 100 seen in one of the slides also finds mention in the Mobile Magazine's ranking of the Top 100 Gadgets of All Time at, yes, position #1.
