  • Publication number: 20220210611
    Abstract: A system and method for utilizing a network of Bluetooth devices to determine approximate location of Bluetooth device that was lost or misplaced in vicinity of the network. The network can be constructed from low-energy Bluetooth devices that would otherwise be only periodically active and/or networked for a purpose other than the localization of lost or misplaced devices.

  • Publication number: 20220038765
    Abstract: Technologies are disclosed for launching an application or service on a smart media device, such as a smart TV, set top box, or smart phone. An input mechanism, that is responsive to manual gestures of a user, generates signals that control a display associated with the smart media device. A first user gesture causes the processor to generate a menu that includes an image of a plurality of images that correspond to a first plurality of preselected applications and/or services. A second user gesture causes the processor to launch the application or service on the menu that is identified as desired for selection by the user. Preferably, the input mechanism is either a remote control unit, a keyboard, a handheld smart media device, or a smart phone.

  • Patent number: 10204303
    Abstract: An approach is provided for contextual content suggestion. A recommendation platform processes and/or facilitates a processing of contextual information associated with at least one device to determine one or more locations, one or more contextual parameter values, or a combination thereof. The recommendation platform also determines popularity data associated with one or more content items with respect to the one or more locations, the one or more contextual parameter values, or a combination. The popularity data is determined from one or more other devices sharing at least substantially the one or more locations, the one or more contextual parameter values, or a combination thereof. The recommendation platform then causes, at least in part, a recommendation of the one or more content items to the at least one device based, at least in part, on the popularity information.

  • Patent number: 9524353
    Abstract: A method and system for providing portions of information content to a client device is presented. The present application provides a manner of personalizing information content for display on handheld or mobile devices. A user may identify sections of a web page as clips, and then request only the identified section instead of the entire web page from a server. Upon receiving the request, the server will load the web page, retrieve the identified section, transform the identified section for display on the client device, and then send the transformed information to the client device. The clip of information is then a live update from a web page that presents the latest content from a web page instead of a cached web page section.

  • Publication number: 20100306643
    Abstract: Methods and systems for processing document object models (DOM) and to process video content are provided. Information content that is represented by a DOM and that includes a scripting language associated with the information content is received and original content of the DOM is preserved after execution of the scripting language. Further, video content is adapted for client devices. The scripting language associated with the information content can be sent to client device along with a modified DOM and processed video content. Pre-processing of the scripting language occurs to identify nodes related to video, and to maintain all other original nodes, for example.

  • Publication number: 20100306344
    Abstract: A system and method for using multipart messaging with preset constraints is provided. A device sends a request to a server for information from a website. The server retrieves the information and looks for referenced subdocuments, e.g., images. The server requests the images one-by-one from servers for a predetermined amount of time, or until a predetermined amount of content has been retrieved. Once the limit has been met, the server attaches the images to the document and sends the information to the device. Thus, the server may send a portion of the requested information to the device. The device then sends subsequent page requests for any information that was not received from the server. Using this system, the device can receive a faster first impression of the web page, without a performance delay waiting for all images of the web page to be retrieved and loaded.

  • Publication number: 20050125845
    Abstract: A method (40, 50) and apparatus (30) for processing a video signal inserts a unique digital signature into the video signal. Thus, rampant duplication or distribution can be traced back to a particular set-top box or receiver. According to one aspect of the present invention, the unique digital signal is inserted into the vertical blanking interval. An apparatus (30) for processing a video signal includes a processor (31) receiving the video signal and outputting a modified video signal having a vertical blanking interval, which includes a digital signature uniquely identifying the processor (31). A memory (33) stores the digital signature and a teletext generator (32) coupled to the memory (33) and the processor (31) and generates a teletext signal that includes the digital signature for insertion into the vertical blanking interval by the processor (31) prior to the processor (31) outputting the video signal.
