  • Publication number: 20190197065
    Abstract: Various embodiments enable a web site to expose various search providers that it promotes to browsers that navigate to that site. In at least some embodiments, the search providers are exposed using the HTML of a web page. When a browser navigates to that site, it processes the HTML of the associated web page and exposes the promoted search providers to the user. In at least some embodiments, the browser can permit use of one or more search providers without requiring the user to install the search provider. Alternately or additionally, in at least some other embodiments, the browser can enable the user to quickly and efficiently install the search provider so that the search provider can be available whenever the user uses their browser application.

  • Patent number: 9894174
    Abstract: A content syndication platform, such as a web content syndication platform, manages, organizes and makes available for consumption content that is acquired from the Internet. In at least some embodiments, the platform can acquire and organize web content, and make such content available for consumption by many different types of applications. These applications may or may not necessarily understand the particular syndication format. An application program interface (API) exposes an object model which allows applications and users to easily accomplish many different tasks such as creating, reading, updating, deleting feeds and the like. Further, in at least some embodiments, a user can subscribe to a particular web feed, be provided with a user interface that contains distinct indicia to identify new feeds, and can efficiently consume or read RSS feeds using both an RSS reader and a web browser.

  • Publication number: 20170272463
    Abstract: A method and system for scanning a computing system network for dark matter computing systems and computing devices. The method includes establishing a communication link between a master server and at least one target scanning agent that has at least one network computing system coupled thereto, creating a scanning job for the target scanning agent, building a scanning job command based on the scanning job, sending the scanning job command to the target scanning agent, receiving scanning job results from the target agent, parsing through the received scanning job results for identifying information of hosts in the network computing system detected during the scanning job, determining which detected hosts are known hosts and which detected hosts are unknown hosts based on the identifying information, and comparing the identifying information of the unknown hosts to reference identifying information to determine which of the unknown hosts are dark matter.

  • Publication number: 20160170097
    Abstract: A liquid crystal device (100) for focusing visible light, the liquid crystal device (100) comprising a plurality of curved substrates (101,102) arranged to form one or more curved cavities (104) therebetween, each substrate being configured to provide a focal power, wherein the one or more curved cavities contain liquid crystal and form one or more liquid crystal elements. Each of the one or more liquid crystal elements are configured to provide a focal power, the focal power of each of the liquid crystal elements being dependent on the curvature of the respective cavity and a voltage applied across the liquid crystal contained within the respective cavity. The substrates (101,102) in combination with the one or more liquid crystal elements are arranged to provide a first focal power in a substantial absence of an applied voltage and a second focal power in response to an applied voltage.
