My Secret Project

I have a secret project. It has nothing to do with As Was. It's based on something I invented last year that's now being built... and patent applications filed.

The "coming soon" page is up, and it lets you sign up to hear more as we get closer to launch, which I'd expect to be in May. Once you sign up, you'll get a special link and some share buttons. The more you share it and get others to sign up, the earlier we'll let you in just before we launch! So spread the word!

That's all you have to type. Yes, we're not saying much yet about what it is. But it's going to be the kind of thing where you wondered what you ever did without it. :)

Thanks, and tell a friend!

Based on the website name and the description on the site I have a suspicion I know what it does.

A few months ago I saw something similar on the news (San Antonio) which was a free service that would automatically send an email to a selected list of people in the situation where someone did not log into their computer by a set time. It was a free service aimed at those using online dating. The email would contain information like who you were with and basically any other evidence you'd like the jury to know for the trial.

If this is basically your service it is unlikely you are going to be able to keep the most generic form of whatever patent you likely filed for since in the US it is first to reduce to practice.

I can't find any information about them online so you can probably still have the edge with good marketing provided they haven't already filed for a patent themselves or don't within the next 10 months. Good luck.

Hi, nullapps. Thanks for letting me know about this other app. I've seen a few apps that are similar to what you mention, and I will only say that mine is different.

In order to get a patent, you have to prove you invented something (or a process). I am sure that my invention is unique. I'm working with a real patent lawyer I've known since 1995, so I'm sure he will lead me down the right path. :)

But thanks!
