  • Publication number: 20150242938
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a computer-executed method, a computer system and computer program product for initiating a command. The method includes causing a consumer input definition interface to be displayed on a visual display of a computing device associated with a consumer, wherein the consumer input definition interface includes an indication of a command. The method also includes, while the consumer input definition interface is displayed, receiving input definition data defining a consumer interaction by the consumer. The method also includes generating a compound consumer input based on the input definition data, and associating the compound consumer input with the command and the consumer. The method further includes storing the association between the compound consumer input and the command on a non-transitory storage device so that receipt of the compound consumer input from the consumer automatically initiates the command.

  • Publication number: 20150242859
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a computer-executed method, a computer system and computer program product for facilitating a commercial transaction. The method includes transmitting computer-executable instructions to cause a representation of an item to be displayed on a consumer interface rendered on a visual display of a computing device associated with a consumer. The method also includes receiving, from the computing device, an indication of consumer input performed using the consumer interface, the consumer input associated with the representation of the item available for a commercial transaction. The method also includes receiving, from the computing device, biometric information associated with the consumer. The method also includes determining an identity of the consumer based on the biometric information and, based on the identity of the consumer, associating the consumer input with a predetermined command defined for the consumer.

  • Publication number: 20150242902
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a computer-executed method, a computer system and non-transitory computer-readable media for facilitating consumer interaction with a promotion. The method includes transmitting computer-executable instructions to cause an impression of a promotion to be displayed on a consumer interface rendered on a visual display of a computing device. The method also includes receiving, from the computing device, an indication of a compound consumer input associated with a consumer and performed using the consumer interface. The method also includes determining that the compound consumer input corresponds to a command for performing an action associated with the promotion. The method further includes, based on a determination that the compound consumer input corresponds to the command, transmitting computer-executable instructions to initiate execution of the command associated with the promotion.

  • Publication number: 20150242942
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a computer-executed method, a computing device, and computer program product for enabling indication of a relevance of an item. The method includes displaying a consumer interface on a visual display of a computing device associated with a consumer, the consumer interface rendering representations of one or more items. The method also includes receiving, at the computing device, an indication of consumer input with respect to at least one of the items. The method also includes, based on a determination that the consumer input corresponds to a relevance command, adjusting the display of the representations of the one or more items on the consumer interface. The method further includes, based on the relevance command, determining a relevance indication of a characteristic of the at least one item to the consumer.

    Abstract: Embodiments provide a computer-executed method, a computer system and computer-program product for facilitating a transaction. The method includes transmitting computer-executable instructions to cause a representation of an item to be displayed on a consumer interface rendered on a visual display of a computing device. The method also includes receiving, from the computing device, an indication of a compound consumer input associated with a consumer and performed using the consumer interface. The method further includes, based on a determination that the compound consumer input corresponds to a purchase command, retrieving information previously stored for the consumer, generating an order to purchase the item for the consumer, and transmitting an order confirmation configured to be displayed by the computing device.

  • Publication number: 20150242937
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a computer-executed method, a computer system and non-transitory computer-readable media for facilitating consumer interaction with a consumer interface. The method includes displaying a representation of an item on a consumer interface rendered on a visual display of a computing device. The method also includes storing, on a non-transitory computer-readable medium: a predefined first association between a first compound consumer input and a first command such that receipt of the first compound consumer input at the consumer interface initiates the first command, and a predefined second association between a second compound consumer input and a second command such that receipt of the second compound consumer input at the consumer interface initiates the second command.

  • Publication number: 20140181069
    Abstract: Providing a speculative search result for a search query prior to completion of the search query is described. In response to receiving a search query from a client node, a speculative search result is provided to the client node for the search query prior to receiving an indication from the client node that said search query is completely formed. The speculative search result may be displayed on the same web page on the client node as the search query, while the search query is being entered by the user. As the user further enters the search query, a new speculative search result may be provided to the user.
