  • Patent number: 9665860
    Abstract: A facility for provisioning and managing registered applications is described. Registered applications can be downloaded to a mobile device from an application provisioning server. When the download is complete, the mobile device may begin execution of the registered application. However, at least portions of the registered application cannot be executed by the mobile device without first passing control to an application provisioning server via a network connection. Upon receiving temporary control of the registered application, the application provisioning server can perform tasks such as license verification and other tasks before turning control of the application back to the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 9633310
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices use search terms, current state information, historical data, and expected location hints to predict where a user may be when a search may be relevant. In an embodiment, search terms entered on a first user computing device may be combined with location information resident on a second user computing device to determine where a user is likely to be and what results are likely to be relevant to a user in the future. In a further embodiment, relevant search terms indicative of time, such as “tomorrow” or “tonight,” and/or user-related information may also be used to return predictive search results. In a further embodiment, user-related information from other users may also be used to return predictive search results.

  • Publication number: 20140074610
    Abstract: Methods, systems and devices for generating a point of interest profile of a target user. Aspects include querying a web site for at least one social comment associated with a point of interest visited by the target user. The at least one social comment may be posted to the web site by at least one third-party not affiliated with the point of interest. The at least one social comment may be parsed for at least one keyword contained therein. Also, the at least one keyword may be correlated to an attribute characterizing visitors of the point of interest. A point of interest profile associating the attribute with the target user may additionally be generated. Further, the determined attribute may be associated with at least one third-party and the point of interest.

  • Publication number: 20100280960
    Abstract: Apparatus, systems, and methodologies are provided that facilitate negotiating discount offers. Mobile devices are equipped to detect product identification data from a barcode or RFID tag. The product identification data can be wirelessly transmitted to a discount negotiator which calculates a discount offer for the product and sends a discount offer back to the mobile device while the customer is considering whether to purchase the product. The discount negotiator calculates the discount offers based on a set of rules which may account for one or more factors, including the expiration date of a product, the quantity being purchased, product bundling, and/or the like.
