  • Patent number: 11354277
    Abstract: Embodiments of systems and methods as disclosed may provide a platform agnostic way to edit content within an enterprise. For example, a platform independent thin client editor may be provided such that this editor can be accessed by users at a variety of computing platforms across the distributed computer network of an enterprise, regardless of the platform from which the thin client editor is being accessed. Moreover, certain embodiments may provide a role based mechanism for controlling the editing of content. Embodiments of such a role based mechanism may allow one editor of a content item to designate a role associated with the content item so that only users associated with that role may be allowed to edit the content item or portion of the content item.

  • Patent number: 10663383
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to an apparatus and methods for applying a force on a sample. In particular, the present disclosure relates to a stress cell (200) comprising a frame (205); an actuator arrangement (210) coupled to the frame; and a coupler (220) for coupling the actuator arrangement to the sample (230). The coupler (220) includes a first coupler portion connected to the actuator arrangement (210) and a second coupler portion connectable to the sample (230). The first coupler portion is flexibly coupled to the frame. The actuator arrangement (210) comprises a first element (214) having a first variable length and a second element (212) having a second variable length, and is adapted to vary a difference between the first length and the second length to provide the force.

  • Publication number: 20190124083
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for associating an application that was pre-installed on a computer with a user account on an online store. A system configured to practice the method presents an application available for download, receives a request to download the application to a computing devices, determines that the application is a pre-installed application, presents an authorization prompt configured to request user authorization to link the application with a user account, receives the user authorization, generates a unique hardware identifier associated with the computing devices, determines that the application is linkable based upon the unique hardware identifier, and links the adoptable application with the user account when the adoptable application is linkable.

  • Publication number: 20110320473
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for the dynamic determination of migration data is described herein. In one embodiment, a process can be provided to search user data in a first system for migration data without requiring user interaction. The search of user data can be based on a blacklist. The blacklist can include one or more folders which should not be searched for migration data or one or more files which should not be included in the migration data. A search of system data for migration data can be performed without requiring user interaction. The search of system data can be based on a whitelist. The whitelist can include one or more file types.

  • Publication number: 20110265072
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for dynamic installation of files for running programs is described herein. In one embodiment, a process can be provided to save an update to a software program in a temporary location in a file system. A determination can be made as to whether an active software program has a dependency on the update. If a determination is made that an active software program has a dependency on the update, the system can wait until the active software program is terminated. Once the software program has terminated, the update can be moved from the temporary location in the file system to a final location in the file system.

  • Publication number: 20110185353
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for mitigating problems arising from incompatible software is described herein. In one embodiment, a process can be provided to obtain, from an external source, an incompatibility list. The incompatibility list can identify non-priority software incompatible with priority software to be installed or already installed on a system. A determination can be made as to whether the non-priority software from the incompatibility list resides on the system. The process can automatically quarantine one or more files associated with the non-priority software identified in the incompatibility list and which reside on the system.

  • Publication number: 20110107325
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for the installation of software is described herein. In one embodiment, a process is provided to verify a first set of packages selected from all packages, for example, on an optical disk, and verify a second set of packages on the optical disk. The verifying of the first set of packages calculates a first checksum for each package in the first set of packages and compares this first checksum to a second checksum for each package read from the optical disk. A second set of packages is verified if the verification of the first packages is successful. The second set of packages is verified by copying each package in the second set of packages, from the optical disk. A third checksum is included with each package read, and this third checksum is compared with a fourth checksum calculated for each package.

  • Patent number: 6942767
    Abstract: A reactor comprising an inlet, an outlet, and a conically spiraling fluid flow channel coupled between the inlet and the outlet. The reactor may be an electrochemical reactor comprising a fluid flow channel that spirals about an axis, the fluid flow channel comprising an anode, a cathode across from the anode, and a membrane disposed between the anode and the cathode. The reactor may have a number of design parameters that are based upon one or more reaction species and that favor the occurrence of a reaction associated with the species. The reactor may be used for the electrolysis of water or for the production of other chemical products.
