  • Publication number: 20200233382
    Abstract: A timepiece is provided which ensures connection reliability and improves antenna characteristics. This timepiece includes a wristwatch case which houses a timepiece module, and an antenna which is provided on the upper surface of the wristwatch case in a discontinuous annular shape along the circumferential direction of the wristwatch case and electrically connected to the timepiece module in the wristwatch case from outside the wristwatch case. As a result, since the antenna is electrically connected to the timepiece module in the wristwatch case from outside the wristwatch case, the antenna and the timepiece module are unfailingly and favorably connected to each other. Accordingly, the connection reliability of the antenna is ensured and radio waves are favorably received. In addition, the reception performance and the antenna gain are improved, whereby the antenna characteristics are improved.

  • Patent number: 10084887
    Abstract: Controlling a remote procedure call from a client computer to a server computer, the client computer extracts a periodic remote procedure call from among a plurality of remote procedure calls from the client computer and extracts a non-periodic remote procedure call from among the plurality of remote procedure calls from the client computer. The client computer identifies a first information associated with the extracted periodic remote procedure call that is an item whose value is determined to represent data targeted by the periodic remote procedure call. The client computer identifies a second information associated with the extracted non-periodic remote procedure call that is a targeted data value of the item, and sets a priority level, used to select for execution the periodic procedure call, based on the first information and the second information.

  • Patent number: 10055097
    Abstract: A change operation changing a displayed portion of an electronic document from a first portion to a second portion is detected. First and second ranges of displayable portions of the electronic document are determined. The first range includes the first portion of the document and the second range includes the second portion of the document. A character string appears at a first frequency in the first range, and appears at a second frequency in the second range. Change information is generated that relates the second appearance frequency to the first appearance frequency.

  • Patent number: 9990444
    Abstract: In a search server, a page collection unit collects Internet pages. An index generation unit generates an index of the pages. An index-tree generation unit generates an index tree representing the connection relationship among the pages in a tree structure, and in which a page linked from multiple pages is represented by different nodes in a duplicated manner. When a search word input unit inputs a search word in a client, a search-result generation unit of the search server generates a search result on the basis of the index. For the index tree, a search-result-tree generation unit, for example, highlights nodes containing the search word, and deletes nodes, each of which does not contain the search word and is not a branch point into multiple branches which contain the search word. The search-result-tree generation unit outputs the resulting search result to a search result display unit of the client.

  • Patent number: 9740391
    Abstract: A method, system, and/or computer program product moves a movable object displayed on a display screen using an electronic device. The method comprises the electronic device displaying a first frame around a first area on a display screen, and displaying a second frame around a second area on the display screen. The second frame displayed is larger than the first frame, and adjusts in size until it intersects a movable object. Once the second frame intersects the movable object, a half line is displayed from the first frame to the movable object, and in response to receiving a movement signal, a display of the movable object is then displayed in the first area.
