Powerful patent. No doubt Google and others will try to poke holes in it.

To quote from the article:


Even more, it could bring some important activities of other companies, such as Facebook and Foursquare, under Apple's purview -- which is another way of saying that Apple might be able to tell these companies to pay up if they wanted to use location services. Given that location-based service is one key to the mobile ambitions of virtually everyone else in the industry, the patent could give Apple control over some hot parts of mobile technology, including location-based innovation in advertising, social networks, mapping, flash deals, and augmented reality. And Apple has proven that it's perfectly willing to use legal muscle to deal with competitors.

Be interesting to hear Telnic's view on this and how "Apple-proof" the future of the .tel project is.

Of course if Telnic could persuade Apple to invest in them - by all accounts they are looking for companies to spend some of their huge cash pile on - this potential threat could be turned into an advantage for both Telnic and .tel !

Well Mike, to a certain extent, .tel is about storing that information in a format that any program can access, so in its rawest form, it's something that Apple can take advantage of, as can other companies and doesn't inherently infringe on the patent (that I can see at least). Beyond that, I guess its a wait and see scenario as to whether or not Apple will spend its time going after all the companies doing location-related activities.

Google or Apple either one would do, but I'd prefer Apple.
