  • Publication number: 20220365639
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described that include receiving, in a tab strip generated by a web browser application, a request to generate a tab group, generating the tab group, in response to receiving the request, where the generating includes generating a tab group identifier for the tab group, enabling pausing or starting of an activity associated with a resource accessed by a browser tab within the tab group based on whether the tab group is collapsed or expanded, and storing metadata about the tab group and the browser tab included in the tab group. The systems and methods may further include causing display of the generated tab group in the tab strip with the tab group identifier depicted in at least a portion of a user interface associated with the browser tab where the generated tab group is configured for display based on the metadata.

  • Publication number: 20220305733
    Abstract: A level sensor assembly (552) for estimating a level of a dielectric powder (412) in a container assembly (544) includes a first electrode member (554) that is coupled to the container assembly (544); a second electrode member (556) that is coupled to the container assembly (544): and a control system (424). The second electrode member (556) is spaced apart from the first electrode member (554) and configured so that powder (512) in the container assembly (544) is positioned at least partly between the electrode members (554) (556). The control system (424) utilizes a capacitance between the electrode members (554) (556) to estimate the level of the powder (512) in the container assembly (544).

  • Patent number: 11452339
    Abstract: Systems and apparatus related to footwear including a modular lacing engine are discussed. In this example, the lace guide is deformable to assist in facilitating automated lace tightening. The lace guide can include a middle section, a first extension and a second extension. In this example, the lace guide can be configured to define a first route for a lace cable, the first route including receiving the lace cable along the first incoming lace axis and expelling the lace cable along the first outgoing lace axis. In this example, the lace guide can also deflect, in response to tension on the lace cable, resulting in defining a second route for the lace cable, the second route including receiving the lace cable along a second incoming lace axis and expelling the lace cable along a second outgoing lace axis.

  • Patent number: 11455666
    Abstract: Illustrative embodiments are directed to methods and computer systems for reporting unusual or anomalous usage a commodity by consumers. A computer system retrieves a set of usage-information datasets corresponding to a set of consumers, each dataset including past usage of the commodity during at least one of a completed billing period and a current usage of the commodity during the current billing period. The computer system establishes a set of report-trigger conditions for the current billing period, each of the report-trigger conditions corresponding to a consumer. The computer system may monitor usage or spending of the set of consumers to determine, for each consumer, whether an estimated usage established for each consumer fulfills the consumer's report-trigger condition. Once the report-trigger condition is fulfilled, the computer system outputs a report to the consumer.

  • Publication number: 20220284001
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided in order to avoid ingesting the entire contents of one or more data sources. An object may be associated with one or more pieces/fragments of data that can be stored in different data sources. When a request for the object is initiated, a search for those pieces/fragments of data can be performed. Nodes associated with each data source may generate data queries appropriate for its corresponding data source, retrieve, and if needed transform the data into an object-based data structure. Any pieces/fragments of data that have been discovered and retrieved can be joined, e.g., by an application programming interface server, and forwarded to a requesting client or application. In this way, only data relevant to the object is obtained. Moreover, object versioning can be employed so that the most up-to-date data is obtained.
