  • Patent number: 6401085
    Abstract: A system is disclosed that facilitates web-based information retrieval and display system. A wireless phone or similar hand-held wireless device with Internet Protocol capability is combined with other peripherals to provide a portable portal into the Internet. The wireless device prompts a user to input information of interest to the user. This information is transmitted a query to a service routine (running on a Web server). The service routine then queries the Web to find price, shipping and availability information from various Web suppliers. This information is then available for use by application programs such as wordprocessors, e-mail, accounting, graphical editors and other user tools. The system provides an innovative collaborative interface to many popular user applications that are useful in a mobile environment.

  • Patent number: 6199099
    Abstract: A system, method, and article of manufacture are provided for obtaining information on a mobile computing environment utilizing a distributed communication network. A pattern template is generated. This pattern template is stored on a thin client computer. A query is then created on the thin client computer based in part on user input. A network is queried for information utilizing a distributed communication network. A response is then received to the query from the distributed communication network. This response is processed utilizing an application tool on the thin client computer. The response is filtered by the application tool based on the pattern template. Information is then displayed to a user.

  • Patent number: 5693862
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a process for transporting toluenediamine (TDA) from a first site to a second site. The process of the invention comprises the steps of (a) providing a molten mass of TDA isomers at the first site; (b) cooling the molten mass to a temperature below the melting point, the molten mass thereby forming flowable particles of solid TDA in an inert gas; (c) providing an airtight storage vessel lined with a chemically inert liner; (d) storing the flowable particles of solid TDA in the lined storage vessel; (e) charging the storage vessel with inert gas; (f) transporting the storage vessel from the first site to the second site; and (g) remelting the TDA flowable particles in inert gas with TDA liquid that is superheated above the melting point to produce a molten TDA isomer mixture in inert gas having substantially the same isomer ratio as that of the molten mass.
