On July 15, 2010, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that reveals various concepts behind a newly advanced docking station-like device. The thinking behind the device is to make Bluetooth paring between two devices a snap, literally. Apple introduces us to a serial pass-through device in the form of a docking station and/or a travelling charger embodiment. Along with paring devices in an easier manner, the device will also add a superior layer of security than is currently available with the Bluetooth standard. Another docking station related patent also surfaced today that covers the topic of inductive power. We point to a few presentations to help you understand this coming revolution.
