  • Patent number: 10325598
    Abstract: Power consumption for a computing device may be managed by one or more keywords. For example, if an audio input obtained by the computing device includes a keyword, a network interface module and/or an application processing module of the computing device may be activated. The audio input may then be transmitted via the network interface module to a remote computing device, such as a speech recognition server. Alternately, the computing device may be provided with a speech recognition engine configured to process the audio input for on-device speech recognition.

  • Patent number: 8471871
    Abstract: Methods and systems for uniform rendering of text across a plurality of client computing devices using a server are disclosed. In one aspect, a method includes sending the document from the server to the plurality of client computing devices and receiving initial text formatting information at the server from a first client computing device in the plurality of client computing devices. The method further includes generating revised text formatting information on the server for the first client computing device in the plurality of client computing devices and sending the revised text formatting information from the server to the first client computing device in the plurality of client computing devices for re-rendering of the document so that the document text appears substantially the same on each client computing device.

  • Patent number: 6500591
    Abstract: A method to achieve good stepper focus and exposure over an entire wafer for a particular mask level before the start of a product run is described. This method can also be used to produce a characterization of lens field curvature (i.e., a surface of optimum focus across the lens) and to characterize lens astigmatism, defocus sensitivity, relative resolution, and other characteristics, and to check the stepper for optical column tilt. The process prevents the complexities of resist development from affecting determination of focus. The process involves forming an array of latent images in a resist and examining the scattered light from the edges of the latent images. Analysis of the scattered light quickly provides information on correct exposure and focus together with lens characteristics over the printing field.

  • Patent number: 6094529
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, and computer program products for linking stack messages to information relevant to stack entries and for generating the stack messages by adding link information to the stack messages. The stack messages are displayed to the user without the link information. Portions of the visible stack messages pertaining to the link information are highlighted, and upon selection by the user of the highlighted portion of the stack message, information relevant to the highlighted stack message is automatically displayed, for example, by running an editor, loading the source file corresponding to the message, and displaying the relevant portion of a source file.

  • Patent number: 5313646
    Abstract: In a computer system having a hierarchical file structure, a file system is provided which permits users of the system to share a file hierarchy and also have a private hierarchy in which files are automatically copied to as they are modified. Through the system of the present invention, a directory appears to the user as a single directory but may actually comprise files originating from a number of directories which are connected to one another through search links. Each directory has a search link associated with it which contains the path name of the back layer or directory behind it. The first layer seen through the system of the present invention is the front layer, private to the user. The back layers behind the front layer and connected to the front layer through the search links are shared layers accessible to multiple users. Thus transparent to the user of the directory accessible comprises multiple layers comprising shared and private files.
