  • Publication number: 20090063652
    Abstract: Improved approaches to make data available locally at business establishments are disclosed. In one embodiment, data anticipated to be soon to be requested by patrons of a particular business establishment can be pre-loaded to a local server provided at the particular business establishment. By pre-loading data that is anticipated to be soon to be requested by patrons of the particular business establishment, local network access traffic and congestion at the retail establishment can be reduced. The improved approaches are particularly well suited for media content data that is likely to be requested by patrons at business (e.g., retail) establishments. Advantageously, patrons can get rapid download of media content data associated with one or more media items that the patrons have purchased from an online media store.
