  • Patent number: 10210260
    Abstract: A client device presents a resource to a user. In order to present the resource, the client device generates and renders one or more presentation strings. The client device generates a presentation string by identifying a template module that corresponds to an content resource object in a dataset downloaded by the client device. The client device then performs a template execution operation on the content resource object. The template module corresponding to the content resource object specifies the template execution operation.

  • Publication number: 20120102386
    Abstract: A server system enables users to configure user interfaces. A generic presentation string is stored at a data storage system. The generic presentation string is renderable to present an unfilled template that may include one or more slots. A template module is generated from the generic presentation string. The generic presentation string specifies a transformation operation. A template execution operation generates presentation strings renderable to present filled templates. In the filled templates, data based on objects belonging to a given type replace the slots of the unfilled template.

  • Patent number: 7673003
    Abstract: A user's address book includes a first group of email addresses. Those email addresses are used to identify address books that include another group of email addresses. Multiple iterations may be used to identify several groups of email addresses, representing a user's social network. When an email message addressed to the user is received, the message is trusted if the sending email address is within the user's social network. Otherwise, the message is flagged as junk mail. Varying trust levels may be applied to messages that are received based on a distance within a social network between the sending email address and the user and/or how often the sending email address appears within the social network.

  • Patent number: 7664814
    Abstract: Subject matter includes systems and methods for presence-based messaging. In one implementation an engine detects the real-time presence of a potential message recipient who can be reached via a communications medium that a sender composing a message is not currently using. The engine can either transition to an environment for composing and sending the message using the detected presence-based communications medium or offer the sender a choice of switching to the presence-based communication medium.

  • Patent number: 7406503
    Abstract: User IDs in addresses to which an e-mail is addressed are logically ordered into a 2D matrix of rows each having one user ID. For each column in the 2D matrix, a column count is found by counting the highest number of matching characters in the column. A column quotient is calculated for each column by dividing the column count by the total number of rows in the 2D matrix. A weighted column quotient is calculated for each column by multiplying the column quotient by a weight that is based on the left-to-right order of the column in the 2D matrix. A numerical assessment is made of the similarity of the user IDs in the addresses to which the e-mail is addressed by adding up the weighted column quotients for the columns in the 2D matrix.
