Real Apple product potentials

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
go to <a href="http://www.uspto.gov" target="_blank">www.uspto.gov</a>

I believe that it will resemble something close to this patent application.
It was finally placed in the records of the UPSTO.GOV under the filed application Number #20020149677

What is it?

A digital camera that communicate via wireless internet connection (CDMA) (GPRS)(GSM) to transmit a block of data i.e. (Plurality) of digital images to a specific IP address.

We call this technology (QuickSend) and commercially the .MAC digital imaging system.

Anyone care to respond?

Hmm... i-Camera/Phone, the next device in the digital hub strategy? High speed Internet connectivity could be a a killer feature for a digital camera/phone hybrid.

I'm confused.

difusi, this is YOUR patent? Thats pretty cool but are you saying that Apple is going to adopt it? You named it Quicksend? What does this have to do with .Mac?

when the metricom ricochet network was in fuller
bloom, a similar capability was offered by the
ricoh rdc-i700 camera with wireless modem.

it was meant to be a boon for press photographers

Certainly it's a patent app, but I don't see anything in this app that would allow it to be approved without encroaching upon methodolgies already employed by a host of other developers. The langauge of the patent appears to be an attempt to corral all the requisite ideas into one patent-worthy place, but I don't smell innovation.

Make me a believer that this is important.

Either he is p***ed with Apple for knicking his idea (if so how do you know Apple is coming out with this?)

or

He's a troll...
