Apple is working on a new kind of "audio hyperlink" technology that would use audible or inaudible signals embedded in a music or other audio track to link out to other media, or to perform some function on the device when encountered. This would allow for devices like iPhones to perform a number of different functions upon encountering said hyperlinks, just like a user would when browsing the Internet and finding traditional ones.
