  • Publication number: 20160179763
    Abstract: As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, portions of media content data corresponding to respective sets of media content received from disparate content providers are restructured into renditions having an article-oriented structure. Device-indeterminate ID linking data is generated to link respective portions of each rendition with media content in the respective sets of media content. For each content provider, access is provided to portions of the restructured renditions bearing the content provider's content, based on the device-indeterminate ID linking data (e.g., providing verification of resulting content layout). Access is also provided to tracked subscriber access to ones of the restructured renditions bearing the content provider's content.

  • Publication number: 20160179762
    Abstract: As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, media content from disparate content providers is restructured into one or more renditions having an article-oriented structure. Linking data is generated to link respective portions of each rendition with media content in the respective sets of media content. Users are allowed to access information characterizing the renditions in the article-oriented structure, and user inputs pertaining to the information characterizing the media content sets is collected. Portions of each rendition are transmitted to remote users based on the user inputs, authorization data, linking data and characteristics of the remote users' access.

  • Publication number: 20160182515
    Abstract: As may be implemented in accordance with one or more embodiments, specific electronic magazines are generated based on user interests as follows. Respective sets of media content data, associated with disparate electronic magazines provided by disparate publishers, are accessed and formatted into a common computer data format type. The formatted sets of media content data are broken into subsets and stored. Remote access to the respective subsets of media content data is provided to a user at a remote interface circuit based on authorization data specifying disparate electronic magazines that the user is authorized to access. This user access is tracked and a specific electronic magazine is generated for the user by combining disparate ones of the subsets of media content data based on both the tracked access and the user's authorization data.

  • Patent number: 9333318
    Abstract: A system for treating a patient suffering from obstructive sleep apnea may include a mask, a portable air flow generator configured to generate air flow at a relatively low flow rate, and a tube connecting the air flow generator and the mask such that air flow from the generator passes through an air flow generator valve on the mask. The mask may include a contact surface for forming a seal between the mask and the patient's face such that the mask surrounds the patient's nostrils, an expiration valve that opens during expiration, and an air flow generator valve that opens during inspiration. In some embodiments, the mask may further include an inspiration valve that opens during inspiration to allow air from outside the system to enter the mask.

  • Publication number: 20160125453
    Abstract: One or more systems and/or techniques for determining advertisement viewability are described herein. In an example where a webpage comprises a managed container within which an advertisement is populated, view percentage functionality associated with the managed container may be invoked to obtain a stream of viewable percentages of the managed container to determine a viewable percentage of the advertisement. In an example where the webpage comprises an unmanaged container in which the advertisement is populated, a grid may be generated and evaluated to determine a viewable percentage of the advertisement. When the viewable percentage of the advertisement is above a percentage threshold for a duration threshold a viewable impression beacon is generated for the managed container based upon the viewable percentage. The viewable impression beacon may be indicative of viewability of the advertisement (e.g., an amount of the advertisement that may be visible to a user).

  • Patent number: 9292144
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes controlling a touch sensor of a device. The control of the touch sensor includes a first processing cycle executed by the controller that comprises acquisition of touch-sensor signals from the touch sensor; a second processing cycle executed by the controller that comprises pre-processing of the touch-sensor signals; and a third processing cycle executed by the controller that comprises processing of the touch-sensor signals to determine whether a touch or proximity input has occurred with respect to the touch sensor. If the touch or proximity input has occurred with respect to the touch sensor, a location of the touch or proximity input is determined. The method also includes controlling other sensors of the device. The control of the other sensors includes one or more fourth processing cycles executed by the controller concurrently with the first processing cycle or the second processing cycle.

  • Publication number: 20150212991
    Abstract: Various aspects of the disclosure are directed to content rendition generation. Sets of disparately-formatted media content are reformatted into corresponding renditions of media content having a common format. The common format includes device-indeterminate ID linking data that links respective portions (e.g., assets or a structural component including the assets) of each rendition with the common format to corresponding portions of the disparately-formatted media content. For each rendition, reformatted assets are generated in which each reformatted is specific to one of a plurality of disparate types of devices, based upon characteristics of the disparate device types. Access to the portions of disparately-formatted media content and/or the assets within the portions of disparately-formatted media content is tracked, based on the linking data.

  • Publication number: 20150199313
    Abstract: Access is provided for different types of media content provided by disparate publishers, and in formats corresponding to operating characteristics of respective user devices. As consistent with one or more example embodiments herein, media content access is filtered for users requesting access via different user devices, based upon characteristics of the device to which the access is provided, user subscription data and publisher-specific criteria. A user-specific storefront interface is generated for each of a multitude of users, based upon the filtering. Each storefront interface indicates media content that can be displayed at the device to which access is requested, and identifies media content to which the user does and does not have subscription access. The user-specific storefront interfaces are presented at respective user devices, and media content is delivered to each device in response to selections made via the user-specific storefront interfaces.

  • Publication number: 20150190141
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes an occlusion device and methods of delivering the occlusion device. The occlusion device can include an expandable structure configured to move between an unexpanded configuration and an expanded configuration. The occlusion device is configured such that arterial blood pressure enhances both sealing with the vessel wall and anchoring against migration. The expandable structure can be configured to have an expansion ratio of at least about 5:1. Further, the occlusion device can be configured to mechanically prevent substantially all fluid from flowing past the occlusion device when the occlusion device is in the expanded configuration in the vessel.
