  • Patent number: 10204308
    Abstract: One or more content providers push data related to: movies, movie products, digital movie content over a network (e.g., a LAN, a WAN, the Internet, or a wireless network) onto an information filling station which, in turn, wirelessly transacts (over a network based on the 802.11b protocol) and transmits any requested data to a portable computer-based device (e.g., laptop, a pen-based computer device, a PDA, a wireless phone, or a pager). The portable device performs financial transactions for: purchasing movie tickets (directly or via auctions), downloading digital entertainment content of interest (e.g., copy of a movie of interest, copy of a movie identified based on a pre-stored profile, copy of soundtrack of a movie of interest), or movie related products. Any purchased digital content is either transferred wirelessly onto the portable device or, optionally, sent on a storage medium to a physical address associated with the profile.

  • Patent number: 9838461
    Abstract: Systems and methods to download digital data files are provided. A particular method includes sending authentication data and a request to download a digital data file from a portable computing device to a remote network device via a first network access point. A first portion of the digital data file is received at the portable computing device. The first portion does not include a remaining portion of the digital data file. Communication is established between the portable computing device and a second network access point after communication is lost between the portable computing device and the first network access point and before the remaining portion of the digital data file is received. The remaining portion of the digital data file is received at the portable computing device without sending a second request related to downloading the digital data file.
