  • Publication number: 20220283753
    Abstract: An image formation apparatus includes a processor and a memory. The memory stores instructions that cause the processor to: record a job history of a job executed by the image formation apparatus; receive an operation for the image formation apparatus to execute a job based on the job history recorded; detect that a job setting condition set, when the operation is received, has changed with respect to a job setting condition established when the job history is recorded; and switch a job set by the image formation apparatus based on a detection result regarding change in the job setting condition and a type of the operation.

  • Patent number: 10180662
    Abstract: An electronic timepiece includes a first display unit and a second display unit that display time. A receiving unit receives a time modification command including time information for modifying a first time displayed by the first display unit. A control unit outputs a first change command for automatically changing the first time displayed by the first display unit into a modified time different from a second time displayed by the second display unit based on the received time information, and outputs a second change command for changing the second time displayed by the second display unit into the first time displayed by the first display unit before the first time is changed into the modified time. A display drive unit changes the first time and the second time based on the first change command and the second change command, respectively, from the control unit.
