More Vingle information surfaces

vingleWe told you about Apple's patent of the term "Vingle" last week, as well as some of the details of the patent. Yesterday, more details emerged. Specifically, International Class 041 and International Class 042 are aspects of the filing that were not reported on last time. International Class 041 refers to "Education via a global computer network, to enable users to program content," with Education defined as, "...providing of training and on-line facilities." More after the jump.


International Class 042 refers to "Search Engines, Internet Services and Browsing," and specifically reads as:

"Providing search engines for obtaining data via communications and computer networks; providing temporary use of on-line non-downloadable software to enable users to program audio, video, text and other multimedia content, including music, concerts, videos, radio, television, news, sports, games, cultural events, and entertainment-related programs; Internet services, namely, creating indexes of information, sites and other resources available on communications and computer networks for others; searching, browsing and retrieving information, sites, and other resources available on communications and computer networks for others."

Check out "providing temporary use of on-line non-downloadable software to enable users to program audio, video, text and other multimedia content, including music, concerts, videos, radio, television, news, sports, games, cultural events, and entertainment-related programs."  A dynamic, programmable iPod? A future, far-reaching version of FrontRow? Let the speculation resume.
