  • Patent number: 10530758
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards managing name service communications. A name service device may be arranged to employ a hardware domain name service (DNS) processor to receive a name service query. The hardware DNS processor may perform operations on the name service query. If operations performed by the hardware DNS processor do not resolve the name service query, further operations may be performed. The name service device may be arranged to provide a name service reply that includes the answer to the name service query. And, the name service device may be arranged to send the name service reply back to the hardware DNS processor. Accordingly, the hardware DNS processor on the name service device may send the name service reply that includes at least an answer to the name service query to the requesting computers.

  • Publication number: 20190210016
    Abstract: A fluidic chip for detecting an analyte is provided, which comprises (a) at least one device comprising (i) a fluid inlet and (ii) at least one fluid transport channel that passes through a detection region, wherein (1) the at least one fluid transport channel has varying cross-sectional area as a function of position along the channel length and/or (2) the device comprises two or more fluid transport channels configured with two or more different cross-sectional areas; and (b) at least one fluid outlet, wherein the device provides for transport of single molecules across the detection region at a desired duty cycle by (1) allowing for detection of an analyte at a different position along the channel length based on the desired cross-sectional area and/or (2) allowing for detection of an analyte in a specific channel configured with the desired cross-sectional area. This application also provides for method of optimizing duty cycle using fluidic chips.

  • Patent number: 10348814
    Abstract: Systems with multiple components managing storage may implement efficient storage reclamation. A storage reclamation event may be detected for a system component. An indication to a request dispatching mechanism may be made which indicates that the system component is unable to perform further tasks in order to perform storage reclamation. A storage reclamation operation, such as a stop-the-world garbage collection technique, or a service process restart may be performed to reclaim at least some storage. Upon completion of the storage reclamation operation, an indication may be made to the request distribution mechanism that the service process has resumed performing tasks for the system. In some embodiments, a gossip protocol communicating availability information to different nodes of a distributed system may provide information to schedule storage reclamation operations at different compute nodes of the distributed system.

  • Publication number: 20120054031
    Abstract: A method and apparatus allows a customer to indicate his or her brand indifference within a product category, and then receive a benefit for purchasing a product chosen by a third party from within this product category. This method and apparatus is particularly useful in differentiating between brand-loyal or brand-sensitive customers and brand-indifferent customers, and allows manufacturers to price-discriminate between these two types of customers.

  • Publication number: 20080065565
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to associate a transferable item price with a first consumer and to determine that a second consumer is entitled to purchase an item in exchange for payment of an amount based on the transferable item price. In one embodiment, the first consumer arranges to purchase an item at a first price. The merchant transmits a transferable item price code to the first consumer. The first consumer sends the transferable item price code to the second consumer, such as by including the transferable item price code in an e-mail message. The second consumer transmits the transferable item price code to the merchant to establish that he or she is entitled to purchase the item at the first price.

  • Publication number: 20070293309
    Abstract: A system installed in a casino allows gambling chips in the casino to have variable values. Each chip has an electronic circuit installed in it to store a chip identifier and data indicative of a value currently associated with the chip. Slot machines and other devices are arranged to interact with the gambling chips to read and write data from and into the chips. A central controller is connected to the slot machines and other devices that interact with the chips. The chips carry a display and/or an audio device to apprise players of the value currently associated with the chip.
