  • Patent number: 10970755
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to system, method, and computer program for providing a wish-list user interface within a web browser, for tracking “fully-stacked prices” for items in the wish list, and for alerting users to a drop in a fully-stacked price of an item in the wish list. A browser extension provides a wish list user interface within a user's web browser. Via the user interface, a user is able to add products from different merchant websites to the wish list. As each item is added to the wish list, an initial multifactor-based price (i.e., the fully-stacked price) is calculated for the item. While an item remains in the wish list, a backend server continues to track the multifactor-based price for the item. In response to detecting a drop in a multifactor-based price for an item in the wish list, the browser extension alerts the user to the price drop.

  • Publication number: 20160321688
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided that provide a credit card payment incentive system. The incentive system incentivizes a credit card member to pay down an outstanding balance quicker than it would typically be paid by making minimum payments against the outstanding balance. A financial system computing system is configured to receive payment data, which it parses to determine a payment amount made by the credit card member against the outstanding balance. The computing system reviews the payment amount against a minimum payment due to determine whether the payment amount qualifies as a qualified payment for purposes of applying a statement credit against the outstanding balance. If the payment amount qualifies as the qualified payment, the statement credit is applied against the outstanding balance.

  • Publication number: 20080179334
    Abstract: A method of distributing and mixing a drink includes the steps of: providing a first container body and filling the first container body with a first fluid such that the first fluid is sealingly held within the first container body. The first container body has a first feature that permits the first fluid to selectively flow from the first container body. The method also includes the step of providing a second container body for holding a second fluid. The second container body has a second feature that permits the second fluid to flow from the second container body. The second container body is filled with the second fluid. The first and second container bodies are joined such that the first and second fluids are separated from one another and are sealingly contained within the first and second container bodies, respectively.

  • Patent number: 6688618
    Abstract: An active vibration damper, such as a piezoelectric element (310, 400, 604, 800), a magnetostrictive element (510, 902) or a magnetic shaped alloy, is placed at a connection point (102) between a vehicle suspension component and a vehicle body or frame. The vehicle suspension component, for example, a suspension control arm (100) or shock absorber, determines, in part, noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) characteristics of the vehicle. In addition the vehicle suspension component determines steering and handling of the vehicle. Desirable NVH and good steering and handling are at odds; that is, good steering and handling typically requires a compromise in NVH characteristics. By virtue of the selective placement of vibration dampers in accordance with the invention, good steering and handling are achieved without sacrificing NVH characteristics.

  • Patent number: 6122023
    Abstract: A non-speckle laser projection display composed of a liquid crystal material for the generation of a high resolution, non-speckle image. The projection display screen includes a liquid crystal material which is constructed in a highly scattered state when no drive voltage is applied. When a high frequency, low voltage signal is applied to the liquid crystal projection display screen, the liquid crystal molecules vibrate slightly at a frequency higher than 60 Hz, thereby causing the speckle pattern to change quickly, and causing the eye to smooth out and see no speckle. In addition, provided is a non-speckle laser display system in which included is a laser image source and the liquid crystal projection display screen.

  • Patent number: 5838416
    Abstract: A device and method for enhancing the viewing angle of a display including the positioning of a liquid crystal beam deflector on display device, such as a liquid crystal display device. The liquid crystal beam deflector is capable of deflecting a display image incident thereon, thereby deflecting a primary viewing axis, resulting in an altered viewing axis and/or a broader viewing cone. The resultant effect allows the user to view the display image from the altered viewing angle or at any position within the broader viewing cone, to provide for a higher contrast output image by deflecting the brightest image away from the direction of specular reflection in ambient illuminated reflective displays.
