  • Patent number: 10652414
    Abstract: According to an example, a scanner apparatus may include a housing, a scan panel positioned on the housing and a lid rotatably mounted to the housing. The lid may be moved between a closed position and an open position, in which in the closed position, the lid covers the scan panel and in the open position, the lid is extended away from the scan panel. The scanner apparatus may also include an optical sensor to detect media placed on the scan panel and a media engine to determine whether the optical sensor has detected a media on the scan panel while the lid is in the open position.

  • Patent number: 10146802
    Abstract: A method for generating device specific thumbnails may includes receiving one or more databases on a computing device from a mobile electronic device where the one or more databases include a key file and a data file. The data file may include picture data and the key file may include an index to the picture data. Also, the method may include generating a synchronization set on the computing device wherein the synchronization set includes one or more picture files to be stored on the mobile electronic device. The one or more databases may be transformed to one or more updated databases, wherein the transforming includes updating the key file to index pictures included in the synchronization set and updating the data file to include thumbnails of the pictures included in the synchronization set. The one or more updated databases may be transmitted to the mobile electronic device.

  • Publication number: 20120310879
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and computer program product for data synchronization between a first file system and a second file system. File systems may be associated with handheld devices, memory devices, local or networked computer memory, or the like. Interaction with the first and second file systems follow first and second syntaxes, respectively. At least one file system is identified, for example based on a file path prefix thereof. One or more translation modules are selected based on the identification, each translation module configured to translate between a file system syntax and a generic syntax.
