Crap on fire.  Can we at least agree in our pathetic, spineless, popular opinion parroting media that this system needs an overhaul?

Here's the initial claim of the Wireless Ink patent (7,599,983): (barf commentary sponsored by ITTO)

1. A method for managing information content in a network-based communication system, the method comprising the steps of:

    providing a content management web site identified by a first uniform resource locator (URL mkaaaaaay) and accessible to a user of the communication system, the content management web site permitting the user to author content to be added to at least one of a plurality of predetermined selectable mobile information channels (Tongue) and to select activation of particular ones of the plurality of predetermined selectable mobile information channels (are you asleep yet Huh?), the content management web site comprising a web page listing the predetermined selectable mobile information channels () with respective indications of whether or not said channels have been activated by the user; and (oh no, not AND Shocked)

    generating a mobile web site identified by a second uniform resource locator different (Shocked) than the first uniform resource locator (otherwise known as frozen, concentrated orange juice, or a standard TCP/IP connection, if you will) so as to allow the mobile web site to be accessed by a plurality of users independently of the content management web site via one or more mobile devices over a wireless network of the communication system (Vomit), the mobile web site comprising a web page having activatable links corresponding to respective ones of the predetermined selectable mobile information channels (Roll Eyes this is why "HEREAFTER referred to as" actually makes sense in some instances) that have been activated by the user through the content management web site.
