  • Publication number: 20140248957
    Abstract: An example portable electronic device includes a display; user controls; a camera for capturing images; wireless communication circuitry for mobile communication; memory; and a processing system for controlling the portable electronic device. The processing system controls the portable electronic device to permit composing of an outgoing message and to permit viewing of an incoming message. An image captured by the camera and displayed on the display is stored in memory in response to an input to the user controls. The wireless communication circuitry, under control of the processing system, transmits the outgoing message and receives the incoming message. The processing system controls the display to concurrently display content of the received message and a linear arrangement of icons.

  • Patent number: 8747226
    Abstract: A car area network is disposed in a car to enable communications between various devices in the car. An existing consumer electronics device (CED) coupled to the car area network (CAN) performs an existing consumer electronics device function. That existing (CED) is adapted to control various devices coupled to the CAN including video gaming devices. In one example, the adapted CED cooperates with a game server to effect game play. In another example, the adapted CED functions as a virtual video game platform to support play of video games. A multifunction controller transmits control information to the adapted CED via the car area network to permit a car occupant to control the adapted CED to permit the occupant to play a video game using the video game display. One or more audio and/or visual devices coupled to the CAN may also be controlled by commands transmitted from the adapted CED or from the multimedia controller over the CAN.

  • Patent number: 8602462
    Abstract: A hook 14 causes an attachment device (cartridge), which is mounted into an insertion slot arranged in an electronic apparatus such as a game apparatus, to be engaged with the insertion slot. The hook includes an arm 22, a ring portion 21 and a latch portion 23. The ring portion 21 is connected to one end of the arm 22. The latch portion 23 is connected to the other end of the arm 22, and is latchable onto a predetermined portion of the insertion slot. Further, the ring portion 21 is pivoted by a spindle 31 of the attachment device, and is shaped so as to be deformable when a force from the arm 22 is applied thereto, the force being caused by the attachment device moving so as to be ejected from the insertion slot.

  • Patent number: 7878908
    Abstract: Multiple video game players access an encrypted video game library stored on a shared mass storage device. A multiplexer multiplexes data read from the mass storage device to provide output streams to multiple video game playing units consuming video game instructions. A secure bus communicates video game instructions from the shared mass storage device to each of the video game playing units. Video game software or other entertainment content is distributed to the shared mass storage device via electronic download in multi-level encrypted form. Before being transported, the content is encrypted and then further encrypted. Once the content has been successfully transported, it is decrypted to remove the further encryption layer—leaving the first encryption layer intact for protecting the video game during storage on mass storage at the remote distribution location.

  • Publication number: 20090082115
    Abstract: A cartridge, which is an attachment device, is mountable into an insertion slot 8 in a game apparatus. At a side surface inside the insertion slot 8, provided is a slide member 41 movable from a near side to a far side of the insertion slot 8. The attachment device includes a housing 11 and a hook 14. When the attachment device is inserted into the insertion slot 8, a predetermined portion of the housing 11 abuts against the slide member 41, and the slide member 41 is caused to move toward the far side of the insertion slot 8 when the predetermined portion is inserted further inside while abutting against the slide member 41. The hook 14 is protrusible from a side surface of the housing 11, and is inserted into a recessed portion (an air gap A1) generated at the side surface inside the insertion slot 8 when the slide member 41 moves toward the far side of the insertion slot 8, and then latches onto the inside wall.
