          Appeal No. 95-0057                                                          
          Application 07/775,114                                                      

          additional data to the data preset on the card.  It is the                  
          storage of this additional data written onto the card for which             
          Fuwa seeks capacity.  Thus, we are of the view that the Fuwa                
          translation considered as a whole suggests that the Fuwa card               
          reader also writes phone call transaction data onto the card.               
          We also note that the question of obviousness here does                     
          not turn simply on whether the preferred embodiment of Fuwa does            
          or does not write onto the integrated circuit card, but rather,             
          whether writing onto the card would have been suggested to the              
          artisan.  Despite any ambiguities in the Fuwa translation, the              
          artisan would have appreciated the obviousness of storing the               
          phone call data on the integrated circuit card so that the card             
          owner would have a record of the calls that were made for                   
          comparison to subsequent billing invoices.  Thus, we find that              

          teaches to the artisan the writing of call transaction data onto            
          the integrated circuit card.                                                
          Appellants argue that Kemppi only teaches the reading of                    
          information from the card and fails to suggest the accounting               
          functions which requires writing information to the card [brief,
