  • Publication number: 20190042553
    Abstract: In various implementations, a first computing device (such as a cloud-based server) receives, from a second computing device (e.g., a notebook computer, tablet computer, or smartphone) a graphical annotation for a document displayed on the second computing device. The first computing device stores the graphical annotation in a database in a graphical annotation data entity and creates an association between an entity containing the portion of the document to which the graphical annotation is to be anchored and the graphical annotation entity.

  • Patent number: 10114810
    Abstract: In various implementations, a first computing device (such as a cloud-based server) receives, from a second computing device (e.g., a notebook computer, tablet computer, or smartphone): (a) a graphical annotation for a document displayed on the second computing device, and (b) a comment for the graphical annotation. The first computing device stores the graphical annotation in a database in a graphical annotation data entity, stores the comment in the database in a comment data entity, and associates the graphical annotation data entity with the comment data entity within the database.

  • Publication number: 20160116223
    Abstract: A ferrohydrodynamic thermal management system is described and claimed. At least one ferrohydrodynamic pump is utilized to motivate a ferrofluid along a fluid communication channel. A primary heat exchanger transfers thermal energy from a system to be thermally managed to the ferrofluid, and a secondary heat exchanger transfers thermal energy from the ferrofluid to an external heat sink. The ferrofluid is motivated within the fluid communication channel by at least one time-varying magnetic field produced by at least one electromagnet, which may be driven by a time-varying electromagnet drive signal such that the motivation of the ferrofluid within the fluid communication channel is controlled in a desired fashion. The amount of thermal energy, or heat, removed from the system to be thermally managed is controllable and may be controlled by a controller that produces a desired time-varying electrical drive signal.

  • Publication number: 20070196267
    Abstract: Apparatus and process are provided to enable rapid start up of hydrogen generator (1) that use partial oxidation reforming. In the start up processes, a heated oxygen containing gas (110) is passed through the reformer (106) and at least one downstream unit operation (108) to achieve a first temperature regime. Then a heated steam containing gas is used to raise the temperatures of the reformer (106) and at least one downstream unit operation (108) to a second temperature regime at which partial oxidation reforming can be initiated.

  • Publication number: 20050227101
    Abstract: A laminated wrapper for a product. The laminated wrapper includes a parchment substrate, and a sheet of polyester laminated to the parchment substrate. The laminated wrapper has properties which allow the product wrapped in the laminated wrapper to be maintained in a usable condition for an extended time. The laminated wrapper can be used in an oven, microwave, refrigerator, and/or freezer. The present invention also involves a method of wrapping a product.
