  • Patent number: 7610631
    Abstract: A dynamic software provisioning system allows provisioning software on a number of different computing devices based upon a desired business process. The dynamic software provisioning system allows a user to request usage of the operating system for a specific period of time, for a specific amount of usage, or in any other desired manner from an operating system provisioning service or from a third party. The provisioning service processes the request from the user or from the third party to provision the use of the operating system and in response to the request provisions use of the operating system for a specific device specified by the request. The dynamic software activation system also includes a local provisioning module located on the device using the operating system, wherein the local provisioning module activates and deactivates the operating system based on instructions received from the provisioning service.

  • Publication number: 20080319222
    Abstract: New crystal forms of N-(trans-4-isopropylcyclohexylcarbonyl)-D-phenylalanine, also known as nateglinide, may be produced by dissolving nateglinide in any of its forms, including solvates, in an organic solvent to form a solution followed by precipitation of nateglinide from the solution, and isolating and drying the precipitated crystal form of nateglinide. The precipitation of nateglinide may be induced either by cooling the solution, or by addition of another solvent which is miscible with the first solvent but in which nateglinide is only poorly soluble, or by combination of the two. Depending on the solvent a specific crystal form of nateglinide may be obtained, e.g., the R?-type crystal form of nateglinide produced by the described method has a different melting point, infra red spectra and X-ray diffraction patterns from the previously known crystal forms of nateglinide.

  • Publication number: 20070079127
    Abstract: A pay-per-use or pay-as-you-go computer uses a secure memory to store individual unique program identifiers. Each unique program identifier is associated with a particular hardware or software component, or service, or the entire computer available to a user. By combining the unique program identifier with a computer hardware identifier uniquely identified transactions may be tracked for both billing and reconciliation. Certificates associated with each unique program identifier, and coupled to the hardware identifier, provide a cryptographic basis for mutual verification of messages, requests, configuration instructions, and provisioning.
