  • Patent number: 10979379
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a user input associated with a recipient of an electronic message. The user input is identification facilitating data that may facilitate identifying a recipient of the electronic message, and may include objects such as media files, qualifiers for how such objects relate to a recipient or may facilitate identifying a recipient, qualifiers regarding specific aspects of the objects and how such aspects may relate to a recipient or facilitate identifying a recipient. The user input is different from an address associated with the recipient of the electronic message and is further different from a name of the recipient. The method further includes resolving the user input against data stored at one or more servers to identify the address of the recipient of the electronic message.

  • Patent number: 10979311
    Abstract: System and method for validating distribution network configuration changes in a client environment are disclosed. The system residing on a client device detects network configuration changes made by a user. The disclosed system, working with a locally stored model of the network, validates the network configuration changes against one or more validation rules that are also stored locally in the client device. When validating the network configuration changes, the disclosed system can perform a number of network engineering calculations to detect invalid network configuration changes. The disclosed system then provides graphical feedback in real time to inform the user of any invalid network configuration changes.

  • Patent number: 10965557
    Abstract: An information management method collects log information of one or more home electrical apparatuses corresponding to service providers. Display screen data is generated which indicates a status of the log information. The display screen data includes groups of information which each contain information on an apparatus, a service provider corresponding to the apparatus, and log information output from the apparatus. Provision of the log information of each group is individually selectable. The display screen data is provided via a network to a display terminal that performs access to a server device. Information is received from the display terminal, which indicates that selection on whether or not provision of the log information is performed. Provision of the log information is not performed on the selected group when a determination is made that refusal of provision of the log information on the selected group is performed.

  • Patent number: 10893123
    Abstract: A mechanism for managing a decentralized application functioning within an application shard in a decentralized network includes an access control mechanism and a resource control mechanism. The access control mechanism includes access logic that determines if a request to submit a transaction for execution by the decentralized application is valid. The request is received from an originator through the decentralized application. The resource control mechanism is called when a request is determined by the access control mechanism to be a valid request. The resource control mechanism includes resource logic that determines if a criterion is satisfied. The criterion may include one or more of a first criterion associated with the originator and a second criterion associated with the application shard. The resource control mechanism further includes forwarding logic that initiates a forwarding of the validated request to the application shard if the criterion is satisfied.

  • Patent number: 10834172
    Abstract: When download operations get started in unison in conformity to RSS metafile delivery time-and-date information, the traffic is temporarily concentrated to a server, resulting in the risk of a system failure or else. In addition, it is inevitable to periodically check whether an RSS file on Web server is updated or not; so, users must delete update-unnecessary RSS files from those objects to be monitored. In view of this, the periodical update check timing of download control information is dispersed, thereby scattering download requests to the server. The download control information is provided with the information indicating whether such download control information is put under update management and/or expire time-and-date information in case the update management is to be done, whereby an information processing apparatus performs, based on the information, erase processing of the download control information when the download processing is completed.

  • Patent number: 10797931
    Abstract: In one aspect, a first client device receives, from a second client device, a request to stream a media item from a first position within the media item. The first client device obtains, from a server, a seektable that identifies a plurality of segments into which content corresponding to the media item is divided, wherein each segment of the plurality of segments corresponds to multiple samples of the media item. The first client device consults the seektable to determine a segment of the media item to retrieve in response to the request, the segment including content at the first position. After consulting the seektable, the device retrieves, from the server, the segment of the media item. The first client device plays the content corresponding to the first position using the retrieved segment.
