A patent application filed by Apple Computer in December 2004 covers a method of buying music or music video from an online store over a wireless network. The application was published Thursday on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Web site. The application describes an invention that allows cell phone or wireless handheld users to interact with an online music store–such as iTunes–and bookmark a song or video file that can be downloaded to a computer at a later time.
