  • Patent number: 8352561
    Abstract: Techniques are described for providing reminders for electronic communications. For instance, response patterns of a user are determined by communication type based on monitoring past response behavior of the user and the response pattern data is stored for the user by communication type. After storing the response pattern data for the user by communication type, a particular communication that is for the user and that is initiated by a first sender is received. A type of the particular communication is determined and response pattern data associated with the determined type of the particular communication is accessed. A response reminder time for the particular communication is set based on the accessed response pattern data associated with the determined type of the particular communication.

  • Patent number: 8352474
    Abstract: A search system generates a plurality of pseudo-documents for a set of documents. Each pseudo-document includes a representation one or more documents from the set of documents that would be retrieved in response to executing a respective basis query over the set of documents. The search system generates an index of the plurality of pseudo-documents. The index provides an indication, for a plurality of respective documents from the set of documents, of the pseudo-documents that include a representation of the respective document. After generating the index, the search system receives a document-query that includes a representation of a first document; and in response to receiving the document-query, the search system identifies one or more pseudo-documents that include representations of at least one document having a predefined relationship to the first document; and generates a result that is based on the first set of one or more pseudo-documents.

  • Patent number: 8352268
    Abstract: Algorithms for synthesizing speech used to identify media assets are provided. Speech may be selectively synthesized form text strings associated with media assets. A text string may be normalized and its native language determined for obtaining a target phoneme for providing human-sounding speech in a language (e.g., dialect or accent) that is familiar to a user. The algorithms may be implemented on a system including several dedicated render engines. The system may be part of a back end coupled to a front end including storage for media assets and associated synthesized speech, and a request processor for receiving and processing requests that result in providing the synthesized speech. The front end may communicate media assets and associated synthesized speech content over a network to host devices coupled to portable electronic devices on which the media assets and synthesized speech are played back.

  • Patent number: 8351323
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for transmitting/receiving a continuous pilot code in a multi-carrier system. The method for transmitting comprises: performing a time-frequency domain two dimensional encoding on an information bit stream to be transmitted; mapping the encoded bit stream to obtain a continuous pilot carrying encoding information; multiplexing a load, a discrete pilot and the mapped continuous pilot carrying the encoding information based on distribution of the load, the discrete pilot and the continuous pilot on a sub-carrier, to generate a frequency domain signal; and performing a frequency-time domain transforming on the generated frequency domain signal, to obtain a time domain sample. The method for receiving comprises: extracting the continuous pilot from an active carrier of a multi-carrier signal; and performing a time-frequency domain decoding on the extracted continuous pilots to obtain the decision of transmitted information bits.

  • Patent number: 8352696
    Abstract: A memory device that has two operating modes. In the first mode the data strobe is source synchronous and is driven by the memory device when data is being transmitted. In the second mode the data strobe is not driven by the memory device. In this mode the data strobe signal is used as a free running clock to sample write data. The capture of read data by the controller is timed by a controller with a calibrated internal timing reference from the system clock.

  • Patent number: 8352424
    Abstract: A system and method for generating replication requests for objects in a distributed storage system is provided. Replication requests for objects in a distributed storage system are generated based at least in part on replication policies for the objects and a current state of the distributed storage system, wherein a respective replication request for a respective object instructs a respective instance of the distributed storage system to replicate the respective object so as to at least partially satisfy a replication policy for the respective object, wherein a respective replication policy includes criteria specifying at least storage device types on which replicas of object are to be stored. At least a subset of the replication requests is then distributed to the respective instances of the distributed storage system for execution.
