Apple patent points to short-range communications bridge

Apple is working on a way to provide wide-area wireless communications to devices offering only short-range communications, according to a new patent application. The application describes a system in which wireless modules, offering both long-range and short-range wireless communication, are embedded in common objects such as cars, purses, t-shirts, tennis shoes, and more, and facilitate connectivity for devices—such as iPods—which offer only short-range communications. As with all Apple patents, this filing does not necessarily represent any future product release from Apple, but offers evidence of the company‚Äôs research in this area. [via Unwired View]
