  • Publication number: 20160003986
    Abstract: A lens blank is proposed, having a first face, an opposite, second face, and an edge inbetween, the first face possessing a final curvature and being coated, in this order, with an antireflection coating, a top coating, and a temporary grip coating. The antireflection coating has a stack of alternating antireflection layers with an outermost layer, whereas the top coating is selected from a group including hydrophobic, oleophobic and dirt repelling coatings. The temporary grip coating and the outermost layer of the antireflection coating are made from one and the same coating material. In this way the temporary grip coating effectively serves to provide sufficient adhesion to the blocking material on the block piece in the processing steps, and can easily be removed from the processed lens upon deblocking without degrading the repelling properties of the top coating.

  • Publication number: 20150143001
    Abstract: An Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) system includes a shared storage that stores data corresponding to files, a file system, and ESB infrastructure functions. The ESB system includes a metadata registry storing metadata associated with the ESB infrastructure functions, separate from the ESB infrastructure functions, and includes storage location information of the ESB infrastructure functions. The ESB system includes a processor configured to receive a request for access to the file system. The processor sends a portion of the metadata registry to a client device, the portion including a portion of the metadata and a directory structure identifying a set of the ESB infrastructure functions that the client device is authorized to access, the portion of the metadata allowing the client device to access a first infrastructure function of the set based on the storage location information. The processor further provides the first infrastructure function to the client device.

  • Patent number: 8954860
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method and system may modify categories for points of interest (POIs) for display on a map at a client computing device based on a bias value corresponding to a classification of a user. A system may receive interaction events from client computing devices. The interaction events may each include an indication of a user interaction with a POI displayed on a digital map at a client computing device and each POI may include a category and a default zoom level. Using a user's location data, the system and method may classify the user based on the user's familiarity with an area surrounding the interaction event POI and assign a numerical bias to POIs that include the category of each interaction event POI. Subsequent requests for mapping data may then return categories of POIs according to the type of user sending the request based on the bias value.

  • Publication number: 20150026714
    Abstract: A system and method of sharing video experiences are described. A request may be received from a first device to view video content being captured by a second device. The first device may be enabled to display the video content being captured by the second device based on a determination that the first device is capturing or has captured video content. Enabling the first device to display the video content being captured by the second device may comprise streaming live video content being captured by the second device as the live video content is being captured by the second device. Enabling of the first device to display the video content captured by the second device may be further based on a determination that the first device is located within a geo-fence.

  • Publication number: 20150012512
    Abstract: Example methods and systems are directed to providing multi-dimensional search results. A source (e.g., a closed captioning stream) may provide a series of keywords. The series of keywords may be used to generate a series of searches. The results from the searches may be presented as part of a user interface in a grid. For example, one row may be presented for each keyword, with the row for the keyword containing the results from searching using that keyword. Alternatively, one column may be presented for each keyword, with the column for the keyword containing the results from searching using that keyword. The series of keywords may be generated once. Alternatively, new keywords may be periodically added to the series of keywords, causing the grid to be updated. Old keywords and their corresponding search results may periodically be removed from the grid.
