Surf Kitchen Patents Customised Phone Downloads

Surf Kitchen has been granted a UK patent for sending customized information to mobile phones, The Register is reporting. ?The novel component of this invention is that when the client application contacts the server (having received the specially formatted SMS) the server puts together a package containing only the latest and most pertinent content for that particular user. This just-in-time generated package is then downloaded by the client...In this way only the latest football scores, or the last security patch, is ever sent to the user; reducing network traffic and download times.? It?s a good idea, if a tad obvious, but that rarely restrains a patent from being granted.
