  • Patent number: 10318001
    Abstract: Techniques are described for dynamically determining the flow of screens to be presented in a user interface (UI) of an application executing on a computing device, based at least partly on a detected presence of a user device (e.g., a portable computing device) in a particular geographic area. Area designation data is transmitted to, and stored on, a user device. The area designation data can describe a geofenced area and/or beacon signals. In response to determining that the user device is in the geographic area indicated by the area designation data, the user device may transmit an alert signal that causes an interface flow to be dynamically determined and executed for an application executing on the computing device that is separate from the user device.

  • Publication number: 20070012444
    Abstract: A filtering apparatus for use in a hydrocarbon producing well for reducing water production therein includes a filtering medium treated with a relative permeability modifier such that the relative permeability modifier reduces the permeability of the filtering medium if the relative permeability modifier contacts water production. The relative permeability modifier may be used to treat a metal portion of the filtering medium in the case of a wire wrap screen or a wire mesh screen or may be use treat a metal portion or the prepacked component of a prepacked screen. The relative permeability modifier may be a polymer of at least one hydrophilic monomer and at least one hydrophobically modified hydrophilic monomer, a hydrophobically modified polymer, a hydrophobically modified water-soluble polymer, hydrophobically modified copolymers thereof or the like.

  • Patent number: 6672514
    Abstract: A portable smart card reader assembly having an upper housing unit (25) having a first mounting structure (28,29), and a lower housing unit having a second mounting structure (20, 21), the upper housing unit (25) and the lower housing unit (12) together defining a cavity (50) for accommodating an electronic insert (17), the electronic insert (17) having a connector (2) for establishing electric contact with an associated electronic device and a contact array (8) having terminals (51, 52) designed to mate with contact pads on a smart card (7) upon insertion of the smart card (7) into the portable smart card reader assembly (1), wherein upon mating the upper housing unit (25) with the lower housing unit (12) the first mounting structure (28,29) and the second mounting structure (20, 21) move into locking engagement.
