  • Patent number: 10275536
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are provided for displaying content. In accordance with one implementation, a computer-implemented method is provided that comprises operations performed by one or more processors, including receiving a first query from a first user, displaying a first set of content based on the first query in a first region of a graphical display, the first region being associated with a physical location of the first user, receiving a second query from a second user, and displaying a second set of content based on the second query in a second area of the graphical display, the second region being associated with a physical location of the second user. The method also comprises displaying a third set of content relating to the first query and the second query in a third region of the graphical display that is viewable by the first user and the second user.

  • Patent number: 9872077
    Abstract: Systems and methods for displaying program guide information are disclosed. In some implementations a method includes, at a computing device having one or more processors and memory storing one or more programs for execution by the one or more processors, formatting, for display, program guide data on a grid. The grid includes (i) a first axis representing units of time and (ii) a second axis representing multimedia channels. The program guide data comprises information representing a set of multimedia events. Responsive to a user-supplied selection of a multimedia event in the set of multimedia events a panel is overlaid on a portion of the grid. The panel provides additional data regarding the multimedia event.

  • Patent number: 9747290
    Abstract: A client computer receives a set of search results ordered based on scheduled time of broadcast associated with respective listings of content. The listings of content include data representing time-bounded events. The client computer displays or otherwise presents a set of objects along an axis of a display bar, the objects corresponding to subsets of the search results. For example, the axis is associated with a unit of time or a unit of relevance.

  • Patent number: 9282376
    Abstract: Disclosed are computer implemented methods, systems, and non-transitory media for representing a plurality of time-bounded events in first and second grids. The first grid has a larger size than the second grid. The second grid represents a second set of time-bounded events in the plurality of time-bounded events. A user-movable window is presented at a first position within the second grid where it encompasses a first portion of the second grid. The time-bounded events in the first portion of the second grid are displayed as a first set of time-bounded events in the first grid. Responsive to user instructions to move a position of the window from the first position to a second position within the second grid, the window is moved to the second position where it encompasses a third set of time-bounded events. Further, the first grid is updated to display the third set of time-bounded events.

  • Patent number: 9071282
    Abstract: In general, techniques and systems for selecting a read rate for short-range communication with a computing device are described. In one example, a method includes detecting, by a computing device, a trigger event. The method may also include, responsive to the detection of the trigger event, changing a near-field communication (NFC) read rate from a first read rate to a second read rate by multiplying the first read rate by a predetermined value. The method may also include generating, by the computing device, NFC signals at the second read rate. In some examples, the trigger event may include an acceleration or velocity of the computing device exceeding a threshold, detecting the computing device within a predetermined geographical location, or detecting an ambient light intensity exceeding a threshold.
