  • Patent number: 10289205
    Abstract: Example embodiments include an example method that involves detecting, via a gesture-detection sensor of a head-mountable device (HMD), a first gesture in a buttonless-touch region. The buttonless-touch region is located behind an ear of a wearer of the HMD. The method also includes activating a voice interface responsive to detecting the first gesture and, while the voice interface is activated, receiving an audio input signal via a microphone. The method further includes detecting, via the gesture-detection sensor, a second gesture in the buttonless-touch region and, responsive to detecting the second gesture, deactivating the voice interface. The method still further includes processing the audio input signal to determine a voice command having a start-point corresponding to the detected first gesture and an end-point corresponding to the detected second gesture.

  • Patent number: 9880704
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems receive a reply or forward command for a selected email message in an email user interface, determine that the email user interface is in full screen mode and that the selected email message is at least partially outside of a visible area of the email user interface, and display a composition window in response to the command, wherein the displaying includes a sequence of images to create the illusion of the composition window sliding up from the bottom of the screen. In an example, a user interface includes a collapsible panel of mailboxes and folders, and a separate and independent favorites bar including a plurality of the mailboxes and folders. One of the mailboxes and folders in the favorites bar may be a hierarchical folder that includes a subfolder that is accessible via a drop down menu from the hierarchical folder in the favorites bar.

  • Patent number: 9832152
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems receive an instruction to establish a rule to take an action on each email message received from a first email address, determine that the first email address is associated with contact data, determine that the contact data is associated with a second email address, and apply the rule to take the action on each email message received from the second email address.

  • Patent number: 9824314
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems determine that an indication that a received message was sent in response to another message is present in the received message, parse a stored message, in response to the indication being present, for at least a partial match between a subject of the received message and contents of a subject of the stored message, and for at least a partial match between sender and recipient participants of the received message and sender and recipient participants of the stored message, and display the received message as grouped with the stored message. A further exemplary feature includes parsing text of the received message for text that is redundant of text of the stored message, determining that a minimum threshold of consecutive matching characters has been reached, and displaying the received message with the consecutive matching characters at least partially hidden from view.

  • Patent number: 9275475
    Abstract: A method that simulates a three dimensional scene by producing reflections in a two dimensional scene. In some embodiments, the two dimensional scene includes a display area for displaying a set of images, and at least one object that is displayed near the display area. The method generates reflections of the set of images on the object and superimposes the generated reflections on the display of the object. In some embodiments, the method generates and displays the reflections in real-time as it displays the set of images in order to cause the display of the set of images to appear to be part of a 3D environment. In some embodiments, the set of images are part of a video that a device displays in real-time. The device generates reflections off one or more neighboring objects from the content displayed in each video frame.

  • Patent number: 9237305
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a video conferencing application for execution by a first electronic device. The video conferencing application is for conducting a video conference between the first electronic device and a second electronic device. The video conferencing application presents, in a first display area, a video captured by the first electronic device. In an at least partially transparent second display area that is superimposed on a portion of the video in the first display area, the video conferencing application presents a set of user selectable items for configuring the video conferencing application.

  • Publication number: 20140365881
    Abstract: A system, method and computer-readable medium are disclosed for dynamically adjusting font metrics. In some implementations, type styles are specified for text by an application running on an electronic device. If a user setting (e.g., font size) indicates a preferred type style (e.g., different font size), then the preferred type style is retrieved and one or more font metrics (e.g., leading, tracking, kerning) for the preferred type style are dynamically adjusted according to one or more rules. The text is rendered using the preferred type style with the adjusted font metric(s).

  • Publication number: 20140236986
    Abstract: A method for searching for documents is provided. The method is performed at an electronic device including a display device, one or more processors, and memory storing instructions for execution by the one or more processors. The method includes displaying a text input field on the display device and receiving a natural language text input in the text input field. The method also includes processing the natural language text input to derive search parameters for a document search. The search parameters include one or more document attributes and one or more values corresponding to each document attribute. The method also includes displaying, in a display region different from the text input field, the one or more document attributes and the one or more values corresponding to each document attribute.

  • Patent number: 8689116
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems receive a reply or forward command for a selected email message in an email user interface and display a composition window in response to the command, wherein the displaying includes a sequence of images to create the illusion of the composition window popping out of the selected email message, the sequence of images including an initial image that is a copy of the selected email message, a final image of the composition window including an editable body, and at least one image between the initial image and the final image that has characteristics of both the initial and final images.
