  • Publication number: 20130031169
    Abstract: Architecture that enables conditional location-based notifications. One or multiple factors (filter criteria) can be considered, and triggering of a notification can be based on some or all of the factors. Those factors can be static (e.g., time based) or dynamic (e.g., a previous user location) and extend the ability to filter unnecessary notifications, and thus, increase user satisfaction. The filter criteria can include checking user back balance, and calendar as prerequisites to sending a notification.

  • Publication number: 20120323347
    Abstract: Exploration outside of a person's normal area may be detected and rewarded. In one example, a game (or other type of application) may be built around such exploration. A device carried by a user (pursuant to appropriate permission obtained from the user) may report the user's location to a presence detector. The presence detector may use this information to build a heat map, indicating the user's areas of common presence. When the location information received from the device indicates that the user has ventured outside of the user's area of common presence, this exploration event may be rewarded with an increase in the user's score. The user's score may be published on social media.

  • Publication number: 20120295639
    Abstract: Architecture that enables a user to define areas of interest in advance, and while in motion (e.g., driving, walking, riding, etc.), the architecture automatically notifies the user and/or user device based on notification criteria such as when the user (user device) is near a specific point of interest which matches a category of points of interest (e.g., museum, restaurants, concerts, police radar, etc.), is heading in the direction of the point of interest, anticipates time of arrival to the point of interest, etc. The architecture enables the discovery of points of interest that did not exist when the user defined the location query for the category of points of interest. Moreover, points of interest that change in location and/or time can also be discovered. Implicit location queries can be processed based on a product of interest or service of interest as well.

  • Patent number: 8135739
    Abstract: Information is automatically located which is relevant to source content that a user is viewing on a user interface without requiring the user to perform an additional search or navigate links of the source content. The source content can be, e.g., a web page or a document from a word processing or email application. The relevant information can include images, videos, web pages, maps or other location-based information, people-based information and special services which aggregate different types of information. Related content is located by analyzing textual content, user behavior and connectivity relative to the source. The related content is scored for similarity to the source. Content which is sufficiently similar but not too similar is selected. Similar related content is grouped to select representative results. The selected content is filtering in multiple stages based on attribute priorities to avoid unnecessary processing of content which is filtered out an early stage.

  • Patent number: 7941700
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media are disclosed for operating system-based application recovery. A particular method saves an application state of an application executing at a computer. When a failure of the application is detected, the operating system provides an option to initiate recovery of the application by reverting to the saved application state. When the option to initiate recovery is selected by a user of the computer, the operating system recovers the application by reverting to the saved application state.

  • Publication number: 20100257035
    Abstract: A digital document request can be received at a publisher computing environment from a client computing environment. A document requested by the digital document request can include an embedded content placeholder. A third-party embedded content request can be sent from a content broker computing environment (which may be the same as or different from the publisher computing environment) to an embedded content provider computing environment to request content for the embedded content placeholder. Content corresponding to the third-party embedded content request can be received at the content broker computing environment. In addition, the digital document can be sent from the publisher computing environment to the client computing environment, and the content can be sent from the content broker computing environment to the client computing environment. Advertisement selection can also be delegated to an advertisement selection delegate computing environment.

  • Publication number: 20100162174
    Abstract: A method of presenting information on a display monitor within a computing environment includes accessing a website containing a related collection of electronic pages, crawling the website to obtain raw image data for at least some of each of the pages, porting the raw image data into a template so that each of the crawled pages is converted into a corresponding information panel containing a mapping of the content of its respective corresponding page, and displaying each of the information panels on a respective display monitor so all of the panels are viewable to a user in a single screen shot. Related methods, apparatus, and systems are further provided.

  • Publication number: 20100125904
    Abstract: A mobile device, such as a mobile phone, smart phone, personal music player, handheld game device, and the like, when operatively combined with a PC, creates a secure and personalized computing platform through configuration of the mobile device's CPU (central processing unit) and OS (operating system) to function as an immutable trusted core. The trusted core in the mobile device verifies the integrity of the PC including, for example, that its drivers, applications, and other software are trusted and unmodified, and thus safe to use without presenting a threat to the integrity of the combined computing platform. The mobile device can further optionally store and transport the user's personalization data—including, for example, the user's desktop, applications, data, certificates, settings, and preferences—which can be accessed by the PC when the devices are combined to thus create a personalized computing environment.
