  • Publication number: 20170031551
    Abstract: A system, a machine-readable storage medium storing instructions, and a computer-implemented method are directed to a Peer Driven Editing Engine (hereinafter “PDE Engine”) that updates a profile of a target member account in a professional social network service (hereinafter “social network”) based on information provided from other member accounts. The PDE Engine identifies a particular type of profile attribute of a member account in a social network. The PDE Engine determines a target member account qualifies for an update with the particular type of profile attribute. The PDE Engine generates a prompt based on the particular type of profile attribute. The PDE Engine generates profile update content based on the target member account's response to the prompt. The PDE Engine includes the particular type of profile attribute in the target member account according to the profile update content.

  • Patent number: 9472066
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for managing orders from one or more of a plurality of vendors. A self service terminal includes a display presenting order icons that may be moved to an open area for initiation of an order, and a plurality of vendor icons representing different vendors. Initiating an order opens a transaction record for the order, and moving a vendor icon to an order icon opens a selection menu allowing selections from the vendor represented by the icon. The transaction record is continuously updated as selections are made. Upon a user selection to complete the order, a payment interface is presented allowing for payment. Upon payment, an order identifier is created and displayed, together with instructions for collecting or receiving the order, and order information is transmitted to each vendor contributing to the order, in association with the order identifier.

  • Patent number: 9141956
    Abstract: A system that supports multi-stage transactions through the use of biometric tokens, such as fingerprint images or iris scans. A user pre-stages a transaction by providing transaction details that can be used a later time to complete the transaction, and the system stores the transaction details in a transaction record that is identified by a biometric token captured from the user. In some systems, the biometric token is captured as part of the pre-staging process. In other systems, the biometric token is retrieved from a data store after the user has provided authentication information, such as a bank card or user-identification code coupled with a secret PIN code. When the user is ready to complete the pre-staged transaction, the system captures a second biometric token from the user and matches the second token to the one identifying the user's transaction record. The transaction details contained in that transaction record are then used to complete the user's transaction.

  • Patent number: 9084513
    Abstract: A tamping and scraping tool for a food processor includes a flat blade in the form of a segment of a circle and a handle extending perpendicularly therefrom. The blade has an arcuate circumferential scraping edge and a chordal scraping edge interrupted by a central arcuate recess configured as a smaller circle segment. The flat bottom surface serves as a tamping surface; the chordal scraping edge permits scraping material from the bottom wall of the processor; and the outer scraping edge permits scraping of material from the processor sidewall.

  • Patent number: 8924633
    Abstract: The erasing of data stored in a nonvolatile memory is performed using multiple partial erase operations. Each partial erase operation has a time duration that is shorter than the minimum time duration of an erase operation that is needed to reliably erase the data stored in the storage location. However, the sum of the time durations of the multiple partial erase operations is sufficient to reliably erase the data in the storage location. In one example, during a partial erase operation, a voltage is applied to a memory storage transistor to remove some, but not necessarily all, of the charge stored on a charge storage layer of the transistor. Following multiple partial erase operations, sufficient charge is removed from the charge storage layer to ensure reliable data erasure.

  • Patent number: 8830847
    Abstract: A system for determining path stability using source routed packets in a wireless network comprises a processor and a memory. The processor is configured to select a source route on which to send one or more probing packets, wherein the source route includes a path between a first node and a second node and calculate a stability of the path based at least in part on a success or a failure location of each of the one or more probing packets. The memory is coupled to the processor and configured to provide instructions to the processor.
