  • Publication number: 20130151620
    Abstract: A peer-to-peer conferencing system provides participants in a conferencing session information regarding the display capabilities of other participants so that the local displays of all the participants can appropriately notify their respective participants of differences in the display capability of a presenter during the conferencing session. The conferencing system further ensures that notifications are received at each of the participants so that each participant is able to synchronize its local display with the pace of a conferencing session.

  • Patent number: 8201108
    Abstract: A communication correspondence notification and reply method is provided. The method is implemented as a software program with the objective to be less distractive and to increase work productivity compared to prior methods. In particular, a notification format for incoming communication correspondences is determined, without any guidance/input from the user, taking into account (i) monitored user activity and (ii) the type of incoming correspondence, i.e. the notification format is a function of tracked/monitored user activity and the message type with the objective to minimize distraction to the user. To further minimize user distraction, the software program determines an area on the display of the computer system where the incoming correspondence can be presented to the user. Once presented, the user then has the ability to reply with minimal effort by making a pointer-device gesture movement in reply to the presented notification.

  • Patent number: 5386867
    Abstract: A Venetian blind including a head rail, a tilting device, two or more tilt cords, a bottom rail, a predetermined number of draw cords, a cord pulley retainer, and a plurality of slats fastened to the tilt cords such that the slats are spaced equidistantly and parallel to one another and that the slats can be adjusted at any angle to regulate the light by the tilting device. Each of the slats is provided with two or more through holes located on the same side of a center line of the slat. The through holes of one slat are therefore obscured by the lower edge of another slat located thereover at the time when the slats are in an upright position to keep out the light.
