  • Patent number: 8040543
    Abstract: An instruction file execution device which includes a receiver, a comparison section and a job execution section. The receiver receives an instruction file and a usable money amount, which instruction file describes a job flow which defines linking of a number of jobs. The comparison section compares an execution charge of a job being handled of the jobs of the instruction file received by the receiver with the usable money amount received by the receiver. If the comparison section determines that the usable money amount is greater than or equal to the execution charge, the job execution section executes the job being handled.

  • Patent number: 7382422
    Abstract: An aspect of a public display device includes a transparent front plate 210, a rear frame 220 and a display panel 230. The rear frame 220 is configured to have a waterproof structure, and the transparent front plate and the rear frame are sealed with a silicone resin interposed therebetween so as to have a waterproof property. A transparent gel-like resin layer 250 is formed between a rear side of the transparent front plate and a front side of the display panel. The transparent gel-like resin layer reduces a stress, which is applied to the display panel by deformation of the transparent front plate. Thus, it is possible to prevent a display state from being changed by an external force when a memory type liquid crystal display device is used.
