  • Patent number: 10289349
    Abstract: A local storage device (LSD) is provided configured to have a host device (HD) in communication with the LSD. The LSD includes a memory array. The LSD is configured to characterize data access usage of the LSD by at least one program executing on the HD. The LSD is configured to monitor access to the LSD as a result of data access operations by the HD relative to the memory array of the LSD. The LSD is additionally configured to determine characteristics of the monitored access. The LSD is additionally configured to, based on characteristics of the monitored access, determine and store data on the LSD indicative of the characterized monitored access.

  • Publication number: 20190141489
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for computing various determinations at one or more mobile devices and/or central machines. In part, such determinations are computed based on analysis of one or more inputs originating at one or more sensors of one or more devices. Such determinations include determining an in-vehicle role, an in-vehicle location, a handheld state, and a vehicle class. Various transformations, modifications, and outputs can result from such determinations. Also disclosed are systems and methods for restricting operation of a mobile device, including restrictions that impede operation by a driver moreso than operation by a passenger. Also disclosed are systems and methods for orienting a coordinate system of a mobile device.

  • Patent number: 10089604
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for managing a joint slide show by a source user terminal in communication with one or more remote user terminal(s) are disclosed herein. During the slide show, a plurality of picture files are shown on the source user terminal. One or more slide-show display-transitions are performed at the source user terminal by replacing, at a slide-show display-location of the source user terminal, a pre-transition picture file with a post-transition picture file. In some embodiments, (i) for each slide-show display-transition, a respective post-transition picture file is sent from the source terminal to each remote user terminal in advance of the slide-show display-transition and/or (ii) each of the slide-show display-transitions is contingent upon, and performed only after meeting a condition related to a number of remote user-terminals from which the source terminal has received a confirmation message confirming receipt of the respective post-transition picture file.

  • Publication number: 20180124233
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for selectively restricting a mobile device. In one implementation, a visual capture can be to identify one or more indicators within the visual capture. Based on the indicators, an implementation of a restriction at the mobile device can be adjusted. In another implementation inputs can be processed to compute a determination, determination reflecting at least one of the in-vehicle role of the user as a driver and the in-vehicle role of the user as a passenger; and, an operation state of the mobile device can be modified based on such a determination. According to another implementation, one or more outputs can be projected from a mobile device, inputs can be received, and such inputs and outputs can be processed to determine a correlation between them. A restriction can then be modified based on the correlation.

  • Publication number: 20170014954
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods, systems, and materials for high resolution three dimensional printing of metals using low cost raw material. The method employs masked brazing foils having structural layers, melting layers, and in some embodiments masking layers. The foils are selectively joined by brazing to form three dimensional metal objects. Some of the embodiments differ in the number of structural and/or melting layers in the foils, how masks are formed, and how many brazing steps are employed. Etching removes foil material that is not to remain as part of the final three dimensional object, and various embodiments are disclosed for applying the etchant.

  • Patent number: 9436830
    Abstract: A securing apparatus includes a security adapter configured to be engaged with an electronic device. The security adapter includes an interface to couple to a host device. The securing apparatus further includes a securing structure that is lockable. When the security adapter is engaged with the electronic device, the securing structure is configurable to transition from an unlocked configuration to a locked configuration to constrain communication of one or more requests from the host device for read access or write access to the electronic device, such that the communication between the host device and the electronic device occurs via the security adapter.
