Apple’s Patent Application on Audio Hyperlinking

Apple is going to hand in an application for a new patent. The patent will be on audio hyperlinking and ready for the market soon.

The high tech giant, Apple Incorporated has applied for an audio hyperlinking patent to the US Patent and Trademark Office. The basic goal is the facilitation of access to complementary Podcast matter. The whole plan is rather complex. It consists of hyperlinks that are firmly imbedded within audio streams. Those with ears to hear may listen to link resources. Encoding reveals presence of audio streaming. And data may traverse long distances on the device. All the rest is about consumer interaction and desired content. The actual working of the device-cum-service is simpler than it looks to be on paper. A Podcast can thus automatically connect to other similar Podcasts, sites or types of media. iPods, iPads and iPhones may be utilized fully via this new platform.

A good example of this device and its effects is a recent concert by Lady Gaga, that mistress of shock and extreme creativity. Her voice and sound effects caused some canines in the crowd to react in a disturbed manner. This was due to the transmission of sub-vocal, ultra high frequency waves of auricular function. Apple’s audio hyperlinking is a technology that is familiar with this strategy and in fact employs it in its repertoire. The normal human hearing range is 20 Hertz to 20 KiloHertz. Those sounds which lie outside this acoustic spectrum may be utilized in the sending and receiving of everything from articles to ads to music and much more. The patent is pending but soon it will be approved and thus become the personal property of Apple Incorporated.
