  • Patent number: 9824314
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems determine that an indication that a received message was sent in response to another message is present in the received message, parse a stored message, in response to the indication being present, for at least a partial match between a subject of the received message and contents of a subject of the stored message, and for at least a partial match between sender and recipient participants of the received message and sender and recipient participants of the stored message, and display the received message as grouped with the stored message. A further exemplary feature includes parsing text of the received message for text that is redundant of text of the stored message, determining that a minimum threshold of consecutive matching characters has been reached, and displaying the received message with the consecutive matching characters at least partially hidden from view.

  • Publication number: 20160071155
    Abstract: A cloud server system determines a selection of an item from a number of items within a retail space based on a user preference profile. The selection is determined by matching the user preference profile to one or more items located at the retail space. The cloud server system publishes the selection to a computer via a publisher socket. The computer receives the selection published by the cloud system via a subscriber socket. The computer is subscribed to listen for a message with topic an identifier of the retail space. A microcontroller outputs the selection to at least one electronic component upon receiving string data representing the selection from the computer. The at least one electronic component acts on the retail space in accordance with the determined selection.

  • Patent number: 9094755
    Abstract: An audio monitoring system for an audio performance consists of one or more terminal units and one or more base units. The base units are configured to send transmission data consisting of channel labels, frequencies, and mix identifiers to the terminal units. The terminal units are configured to receive and store the transmission data. The terminal units permit a user to select the stored transmission data and to display the transmission data on a user display. The terminal units can receive audio signals from the base units over the stored frequencies and are configured to output the corresponding audio signals to a sound transmission device.
