  • Patent number: 10061472
    Abstract: An information terminal enables a user to simply and easily confirm a plurality of pieces of update information handled by a plurality of various application programs without any troublesome operation. An information storage stores a plurality of different types of information. An update information storage stores a part of information updated in the information storages as update information associated with the respective types. An update information manager monitors an information update in the information storages and stores, when an information update is made in the information storages, the part of the updated information in the update information storage as update information associated with the respective types. Further, an information selector extracts the update information stored in the update information storage in time series and outputs them to display them on a screen.

  • Patent number: 7151862
    Abstract: Texture data filtered according to each of different reduction ratio are stored in a texture buffer. A texture mapping apparatus (an lod calculating apparatus) calculates an lod (Level Of Detail) which represents a reduction ratio of each pixel of a polygon. The calculation does not include a divisional calculation. In other words, the lod calculating apparatus does not need many multipliers, as compared with a case in which an operation including a divisional calculation, thereby enabling the down-sizing of the lod calculating apparatus.
