  • Patent number: 11347754
    Abstract: A method of managing a display of applications on a computing device can include identifying a plurality of contexts in which the computing device is used, each context being associated with (i) one or more signals and (ii) a plurality of applications. The method can also include detecting at least a subset of the signals during usage of the computing device and determining, based on the detected signals, that the computing devices is being used within a first context. The method can further include ranking, based on usage of the computing device, the applications associated with the first context. The method can still further include displaying, based on the ranking, representations of a first subset of the applications associated with the first context on a display of the computing device.

  • Patent number: 10762195
    Abstract: Systems and methodologies for accessing resources associated with a Web-based application in accordance with one or more embodiments disclosed herein may include a browser that obtains at least first resources from a first domain and second resources from a second domain and a resource management component that facilitates controlled communication between the first resources and the second resources and prevents the first resources and the second resources from accessing other resources that the first resources and the second resources are not permitted to access. The resource management component may be further operable to contain restricted services in a sandbox containment structure and/or to isolate access-controlled resources in a service instance. In addition, the resource management component may be operable to facilitate the flexible display of resources from disparate domains and/or controlled communication therebetween.

  • Publication number: 20200272050
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to novel negative-type photoresist composition and methods of their use. The disclosure further relates to multiple trigger photoresist processes which allow for the improvement in contrast, resolution, and/or line edges roughness in some systems without giving up sensitivity. The photoresist compositions and the methods of the current disclosure are ideal for fine patent processing using, for example, ultraviolet radiation, extreme ultraviolet radiation, beyond extreme ultraviolet radiation, X-rays and changed particle. The disclosure further relates to sensitivity enhancing materials useful in the disclosed compositions and methods.

  • Publication number: 20200148392
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and system for testing a fuel tank for an aircraft. Electrical power is sent to an optical data concentrator for the fuel tank for the aircraft from a power supply such that the optical data concentrator sends optical signals to optical sensors inside the fuel tank through optical fibers connecting the optical data concentrator to the optical sensors. The electrical power is sent during a phase of manufacturing of the aircraft. Test data is received from the optical data concentrator by a computer system. The test data is based on optical response signals received from the optical sensors. A determination of states for the optical sensors is made by the computer system using the test data. A graphical indication of the states determined for the optical sensors inside the fuel tank is displayed by the computer system in a graphical user interface on a display system.
