Sounds kinda like RFID technology to me, but maybe it will be different. Who knows.

If it can send power from a portable handheld device, then go for it because it would be kinda cool
updating an E-Paper screen or something from your phone with a swipe so you don't have to keep the phone on to display information (for example, updating the e-ink display with a news article or map so you don't drain your phone's battery).

I'm a little confused. The technology would allow wireless power AND data transmission between two devices over the same resonant frequency? Simultaneously?

If that is correct it would be incredible, especially if it offered enough bandwidth to stream music. It would also need to offer a distance greater than the pocket to the ear without much power loss. That would allow wireless earbud headphones that don't look like a brick hanging from your ear. Google Glass could increase its capabilities without much worry of adding more battery weight to the eye-wear. Sounds cool to me... but again, this article is too vague and I'm probably just wishfully dreaming that this is a revolutionary technology.

patent? is it something like if my teacher patent 1+1=2 round shape square is his own math equations and design, even he could teach me about the equation me but I have no right to use it in my own purpose for any reason(like I could be teaching other with this equation to make money)? or else I will be violate the law of copyright?

this patent trademark stuff is more in the bad way in influence the evolution of technology? is more like keeping your idea or stuff you can come up first and patent it by law enforcement protect it to be your personal belonging. magic stuff who came first who own it.

The technology might not even exist... they may just be one-upping everyone else patenting wireless power transmission by adding data as well.

Tesla demonstrated a working wifi power transmission device back in the late 19th century with efficiency rating of 30 to 40% at the time, which he supposedly perfected before the early 20th century.

This merger of technologies is only logical... and relatively simple for technology of decades ago... let alone today.
Seeing how we live in a monetary system however, good luck seeing such technologies in the general population use short after the first prototypes have been made - which is predominantly determined by fictional 'cost' (that has nothing to do with resources or technological ability to do something in abundance).

If this were apple patenting the same thing, people would jump on and say why not just patent electricity

Data over power has been around for more than 10 years, and wireless energy transfer has been around since the days of Tesla. I can't believe it took this long for a corporation to try to put them together.

in the meantime, after filing a patent for wind turbines, apple is preparing to patent gravity
