"Mobile Collegiate Commerce System" - Filed Aug 4, 2008

Abstract:  "A mobile commerce system and method includes a fronted software that enables a variety of displays on a mobile device. The displays display information about college-related merchandise. The information can be tailored for a specific college to which the user has pre-approved access, via a user account management module employed on a server associated with the college. A backend, including a database, stores a product catalogue of the merchandise, which is accessible by the user operating mobile device, and which is transmitted on request to the user for display and operation by the mobile device."

"Devices, systems, and methods for solving challenges in telecom and sales marketing" - Issued

Abstract:  "Handheld communication devices, such as wireless phones, include one or more application programs that permit a person to sell handheld communication products at a point of contact with a potential customer. The methods reward the user of the handheld communication device by providing incentives for selling communication products. By purchasing the handheld communication devices, the customer may then sell other communication products to other customers. The sales of the handheld communication products result in an expanding network of customers and increased revenue for telecommunication companies."
