  • Patent number: 5845263
    Abstract: A portable interactive visual ordering system and method utilizing full-color images. The system may be used by a restaurant to facilitate ordering menu items by a customer. The customer can request the system to display full-color images of a menu item as a help to decide what to order. The customer can also obtain a list of ingredients, method of preparation and nutritional information for a selected menu item. When the customer decides to order a particular menu item, the system captures the ordered item and tabulates a running bill. In another embodiment of the system, multiple visual ordering devices are networked together at the restaurant. An option in the networked system is to allow the customer to pay the bill by a credit card or debit means at his/her table. The system enables businesses to reduce labor costs in running the business and provides the customer with more information at the point of sale to make a more informed decision.

  • Patent number: 5784564
    Abstract: A closed browser for navigating the world-wide web includes a tabular listing of destination addresses, such as uniform resource location codes (URL). Thus, the destination addresses can correspond to open links on the Internet, closed links on the Internet, and may also correspond to one or more local area networks (LANs)/intranets, and indeed to particular directories or files on the LAN or single user hard drive. A user may select a destination address only from the tabular listing, and may not directly input a URL that is not contained in the listing. A closed site determiner utility is also provided for determining whether a link is open or closed, based on user-defined criteria.
