Every now and then, I get a press release that is really worth sharing with the outside world. And this one really takes the biscuit.
Its from a company called MTomic, who have patented.... wait for it.... a marketplace for content and digital collectibles where users can buy, sell, trade, swap and resell digital items at 'buy it now' prices or auction.
And how does digital content become "collectable" ? Well, MTomic have evidently developed a system that "wears" the relevant content.
Why bother ? Listen to this gem from the company's CEO.
"If your ringtone is this week's No.1 hit it's old news by next Monday - unless it has a unique feature or is a key item in a Collectible Series. Then it's cool and sought after. It lives on as a Digital Collectible that can be traded or treasured!"
Nurse, the screens !!
