  • Patent number: 8868702
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a server device connected to a client device by way of a network includes a receiving unit, a first detecting unit, a cycle changing unit, a second detecting unit, and a transmitting unit. The receiving unit receives operation data through the network. The first detecting unit detects, from among operation events based on the received operation data, a specific operation event. The cycle changing unit, when the specific operation event is detected, changes a change detection cycle for screen data that is updated in an application in accordance with the specific operation event from a first cycle to a second cycle that is longer than the first cycle. The second detecting unit detects a change in the screen data in the second cycle. The transmitting unit transmits the screen data, in which the change is detected, to the client device.

  • Patent number: 8713336
    Abstract: The detecting unit detects a disconnection of communications that have been established with a display apparatus. When the disconnection of the communications is detected, the message generating unit generates a confirmation message that confirms whether the communications should be reestablished. The transmitting unit transmits the confirmation message to the display apparatus. The receiving unit receives a reply message that indicates whether the communications should be reestablished from the display apparatus. The main power supply controlling unit shuts down the main power supply when the reply message indicates that the communications should not be reestablished, or when no reply message is received.

  • Patent number: 8512544
    Abstract: The method of the present invention includes a step (i) in which a voltage is applied between first and second electrodes 21 and 22 so that the first electrode serves as a cathode, with the first and second electrodes 21 and 22 being placed in contact with a material that allows ions to move therethrough. The material includes an adsorbent (gel 11) containing a macromolecule that has adsorbed a metal ion. The macromolecule contains the same constitutional units as those contained in a macromolecule extracted from Aphanothece sacrum. The first electrode 21 is placed in contact with the adsorbent in step (i). The metal is deposited on a surface of the first electrode 21 by applying the voltage in step (i).

  • Publication number: 20130083680
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a server includes a transmitter, a storage, a determination unit and a controller. The transmitter is configured to transmit data using TCP streams. The storage is configured to store a number of TCP streams which the transmitter used in transmitting the data and a maximum value of a bandwidth which the transmitter used in transmitting the data using the number of TCP streams, in association with each other. The determination unit is configured to determine a number of TCP streams, which the transmitter uses in transmitting new data, based on the stored number, the stored maximum value, and a target value of the bandwidth. The controller is configured to update the stored maximum value when a bandwidth used for transmitting the new data using the determined number is larger than the maximum value associated with the stored number which is identical to the determined number.
