  • Patent number: 9613034
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses and computer program products are provided for updating a content item. In this regard, a current context associated with a content item can be determined based on criteria such as, a user's tendencies, user preferences, battery level, time of day, etc. The current context of the content item can be active or inactive. If a content item is in an active current context and an associated triggering event occurs, the content item can be updated. If the content item is in an inactive current context, the content item need not be updated. Content items may be updated in various manners, including generating a preview of the content item. A preview of a content item may be generated by retrieving the content item via an interface, where the interface is determined from data associated with the content item. Upon retrieval of a content item via the interface, a preview of the content item can be generated, such as by generating an image file having associated metadata.

  • Patent number: 8989787
    Abstract: A method includes transferring data between a mobile station for communicating over a mobile communications network and a server in the Internet having a connection to the mobile communications network. The transfer of data includes providing at least a portion of a page on the Internet in the form of code, the code including a telephone number of the mobile station as hidden information, receiving the code in the mobile station in a first user message where the first user message is a short message service message, and interpreting the code in the mobile station to cause the mobile station to display information corresponding to the page on the Internet on the mobile station, wherein the information to be displayed on the mobile station does not include the hidden information.

  • Patent number: 8718547
    Abstract: A system for imitating the functionality of a machine readable tag using a virtual tag. In at least one embodiment, a WCD (100) may communicate with a machine readable tag (120) and copy the data structure and contents of the machine readable (120) onto the WCD (100). The WCD may create a virtual tag using downloaded information and associate the virtual tag with an image corresponding to the virtual tag. The virtual tag may then be used to imitate the interaction logic between the machine readable tag (120) and the WCD (100).

  • Publication number: 20090312049
    Abstract: A method and apparatus that features using haptics for actively probing the physical surrounding of a device, such as a mobile phone, and providing in response to the active probing a probable context of the device is presented. In one embodiment, a probing force is prepared and provided and imparted to the device. The displacement of the device relative to its physical surrounding in response to the probing force is sensed and a probable context is determined in response to the sensed displacement. In some embodiments, a context feedback signal indicative of the characteristics of the probable context is produced. In some embodiments, the device is configured for producing a haptic alert and for providing a haptic effect responsive to the haptic alert. In some embodiments the relative strength of a haptic alert is adjusted according to the determined probable context.
