Prior Art Alert - Apple Publ. Appl. 20120166477 ~mw - UPDATE
Thursday, October 18 2012 @ 01:55 PM EDT

This is a request to search for prior art.

If you do not want to be exposed to the patent application, do not click on the links below.

One of our readers suggests that Apple patent application (publication number) 20120166477, "Universal Interface for Retrieval of Information in a Computer System," may benefit from a public prior art search. The application is being discussed here on AskPatents.

The US Patent and Trademark Office has already identified two U.S. patents which appear to be relevant prior art: 6,185,567 and 6,070,158.

If you are willing to search for prior art, please feel to either post it as a comment here or post it on AskPatents. I will see that the best references are submitted to the USPTO.

UPDATE

The prior are should date to before January 5, 2000.
