  • Patent number: 9542076
    Abstract: A living address book allows subscribers to define their own personas as collections of information which define the users. Subscribers can then publish their persona(s) to their friends' and associates' mobile phones and update the others' address books with the subscriber's contact information. Users can also specify different personas to be presented to different users. The living address book graphical user interface allows more efficient and easier access to data.

  • Patent number: 9432439
    Abstract: In accordance with the invention, mobile phones and other electronic devices access content through links, rather than storing the content on the mobile phone or at a location under the control of a mobile phone operator. A user retrieves the content by accessing a link on the mobile phone, which results in transferring the content from a content-provider location directly to the mobile phone. In this way, the mobile phone operator does not have to reserve storage for the content, and the content provider, alerted that the user is restoring or otherwise requesting content, is able to offer the user upgrades, replacement content, and related content. To better offer a user relevant content, a history of purchases for the mobile phone, the user, or both is maintained.

  • Patent number: 8620286
    Abstract: In accordance with the invention, digital content is able to be better promoted on mobile phones and other electronic devices. The digital content and/or references to the digital content are stored on a server device which is accessible by the mobile phones or electronic devices. In operation, a user of a mobile device acquires digital content. When the user obtains a second mobile device, to facilitate and promote the same or similar digital content on the second mobile device, the digital content or references stored on a server device are able to be used to present the possibility of acquisition of the digital content for the second mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20070053335
    Abstract: Technology is provided to allow users of wireless mobile devices to propagate personal contact information to other users in an automated fashion. Users can create a “persona” of information which is made public, or destined for groups or individual friends, which is then distributed and added to the mobile device's address book or other data store in an automated or semi-automated fashion. A process for installing personification information to a first wireless device includes: detecting a communication initiation between the first wireless device and a second wireless device user; in response to said detecting, retrieving published persona information of the second wireless device user; and storing the published persona information in an address book on the first wireless device.

  • Publication number: 20050102257
    Abstract: A system and method for organizing information in a personal information space. The personal information space includes at least one data source holding at least a portion of the personal information space. The system includes an agent for the data source which provides interaction information regarding data in the data source; and a interaction evaluation engine including one or more weighting characteristics for each interaction, and providing an output reflecting a weighting of one or more characteristics of the interaction. The method may comprise the steps of determining when an interaction between a contact on one of the contact data sources occurs; analyzing one or more characteristics of the interaction event to determine a at least one trait about the interaction; and generating a result based on said step of analyzing.

  • Publication number: 20050099963
    Abstract: A data transmission system which optimizes transfer and updates of information between systems by providing difference information between the systems is disclosed. Information transfer can occur one way (broadcast) or two-way (sync). In a first aspect, the system includes a differencing transmitter transmitting at least one set of difference transactions and a differencing receiver receiving said at least one set of difference transactions. The differencing transmitter of the data transmission system may comprise a difference source interface, a copy of a previous state of said difference source, and a difference transaction generator. The differencing receiver of the data transmission system comprises a difference destination interface, a copy of a previous state of said difference destination, and a destination data constructor. In a further embodiment, the data transmission system is coupled to a network.
