|20100031043||PORTABLE ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION SYSTEM AND METHOD - A method is disclosed for enabling a user interface on a computer operated by a user to cause memory content of an electronic device distinct from the computer to be modified. A communication link may be established between the user interface and the electronic device by establishing a first connection between the user interface and a server distinct from each of the computer and the electronic device, and establishing a second connection between the electronic device and the server. The user interface may be used to communicate with the server via the first connection so as to cause the server to communicate with the electronic device via the second connection and thereby cause new information to be added to the memory of the electronic device via the second connection.||02-04-2010|
|20090222349||Portable electronic authorization system and method - A portable electronic device may be configured to present information identifying a coupon or rebate offer concerning a product or service in a machine-readable format at a point of sale. The portable electronic device may additionally or alternatively be configured to electronically receive information identifying a coupon or rebate offer concerning a product or service while disposed at a first location, and to store the information in memory so that the information can be selectively retrieved from the memory and presented in a manner that enables the information to be communicated to a provider of the product or service in connection with a purchase of the product or service consummated when the portable electronic device is disposed at a second location. The portable electronic device may be further configured to, in response to the occurrence of at least one event, automatically disable a capability of the portable electronic device to present the information.||09-03-2009|
|20090212909||PORTABLE ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION SYSTEM AND METHOD - In one embodiment, an apparatus comprises a user authenticator and a transponder. The transponder is permitted to emit a wireless signal representing information stored in the apparatus in response to a wireless interrogation signal after the user authenticator has authenticated the identity of the user. In another embodiment, an apparatus comprises, a memory, a user input, and a transponder. The memory stores at least first and second distinct codes. The user input permits a user to select any one of the at least first and second codes for transmission in response to a wireless interrogation signal. The transponder emits a wireless signal representing the selected one of the at least first and second codes in response to an interrogation signal. In yet another embodiment, a token that may be used to engage in a transaction at a point of sale comprises a substrate, a rewritable memory, and a reconfigurable display. The rewriteable memory is supported by the substrate and can be selectively configured to store information on the token that identifies an account that is to be used to engage in the transaction at the point of sale. The substrate and memory are configured and arranged such that the substrate can be selectively interfaced with an apparatus at the point of sale to permit the apparatus to read the contents of the memory. The reconfigurable display is also supported by the substrate and displays at least some of the information that is stored in the rewritable memory.||08-27-2009|
