  • Patent number: 10097535
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods and apparatuses that utilize a portable apparatus to securely operate a host electronic device. Typically, each portable apparatus includes a data storage unit which stores an operating system and other software. In one example, a portable apparatus can provide a virtual operating environment on top of a host's operating system for a host device. In another example, a portable apparatus containing its operating system can directly boot a host device with one or more hardware profiles. Furthermore, a device-dependent protection against software piracy, a user-dependent protection against sensitive data leaks, a controllable host operating environment to prevent unwanted information exposure, and a secure restoration procedure to prevent virus infection between the host device users may be incorporated. Moreover, a pre-defined information may also be utilized to authorize a connected-state guest operation environment in the host device.

  • Patent number: 9946746
    Abstract: The subject technology provides configurations for propagating information from an initial analytics tracking data communication to subsequent analytics tracking data communications at an analytics server. In one example, the subject technology receives an analytics tracking data communication. The subject technology determines if the received analytics tracking data communication includes state changing information based on analytics tracking data included in the analytics tracking data communication. The subject technology then determines one or more attributes for propagating to subsequent analytics tracking data if the analytics tracking data communication includes state changing information. The state changing information are stored as one or more of the determined one or more attributes. The subject technology stores the analytics tracking data including the determined one or more attributes.

  • Patent number: 8484552
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for extensible stylesheet design using meta-tag information are disclosed. A designed stylesheet is for transferring content-oriented markup language files into a target file so as to support various presentations and information exchange. According to one aspect, a data processing mechanism starts with inserting meta-tag declarations in a target file wherein the meta-tag information pertains to information between dynamic objects in the target file and a source file. The target file with meta-tag information is then converted into one or more extensible stylesheets.

  • Patent number: 7996498
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method and an apparatus that utilize a portable apparatus to operate a host computer in a network environment. The portable apparatus including an operating system and a list of software applications are installed in a removable data storage medium. The basic input/output system (BIOS) of the host computer will directly or indirectly identify the portable apparatus as its boot drive. The host computer immersed in a network environment will further load the operating system in the portable apparatus into its random access semiconductor memory (RAM). In one embodiment of the invention, a hardware profile which contains host and peripheral device-related information is either stored or operatively accessible by the host computer. The operating system is capable of incorporating information from the hardware profile during an OS-loading procedure.

  • Publication number: 20100211453
    Abstract: An online local search system and method utilizes local business info providers to enter and update business information related to local businesses. The online local search system and method uses a territorial listing concept with an optional reservation stage, an editing stage, and a pending stage to reduce overlapping listings and promote robust update of business information. The online local search system and method also uses a territorial advertising concept, which allows a business info provider with more business listing entries to capture a larger portion of pay-per-user-interest (e.g. pay-per-click, pay-per-impression, pay-per-action, and etc.) profits based on in-category or out-category advertising on the online local search system.
