  • Patent number: 9223766
    Abstract: An e-reader application preserves formatting of a selection through a snippet. The application determines a format of a portion of content in response to a user action selecting the portion. The formatted portion is stored in the snippet. The source code of the portion is extracted from the content and stored in the snippet to preserve its format. The snippet is displayed in a navigation pane using the format. The snippet is resized according to the defined format to fit available space in the navigation pane. The application is enabled to navigate to a location of the portion within the content in response to detecting another selection activating the snippet.

  • Publication number: 20140047308
    Abstract: An e-reader application provides a note based annotation of content in an e-reader. A user action to annotate the content initiates a note pane to capture a note. The note includes variety of types including text, ink, snippet, audio recording, and photo. The note is captured in the note pane which is configured according to the note type. The note is stored in a platform-agnostic in a cloud storage. A local cache also maintains the note for offline usage. The note is anchored to the content using an anchor marker placed within proximity to a selection associated with the note in the content.

  • Publication number: 20130263052
    Abstract: A user interface (UI) system calculates movements in a multi-layer graphical user interface. The UI system receives user input corresponding to gestures on a touchscreen. The UI system calculates a movement of a first layer in a first direction (e.g., a horizontal direction) at a first movement rate. The UI system calculates a movement of a second layer substantially parallel to the movement of the first layer, at a second movement rate that differs from the first movement rate. The UI system calculates a movement (e.g., a vertical movement) in a direction substantially orthogonal to the first direction, in a UI element of one of the layers.

  • Publication number: 20120159404
    Abstract: A processing device and method are provided for capturing images, via an image-capturing component of a processing device, and determining a motion of the processing device. An adaptive search center technique may be employed to determine a search center with respect to multiple equal-sized regions of an image frame, based on previously estimated motion vectors. One of several fast block matching methods may be used, based on one or more conditions, to match a block of pixels of one image frame with a second block of pixels of a second image. Upon matching blocks of pixels, motion vectors of the multiple equal-sized regions may be estimated. The motion may be determined, based on the estimated motion vectors, and an associated action may be performed. Various embodiments may implement techniques to distinguish motion blur from de-focus blur and to determine a change in lighting condition.

  • Patent number: 8170901
    Abstract: A user interface for building a componentized workflow model. Each step of the workflow is modeled as an activity that has metadata to describe design time aspects, compile time aspects, and runtime aspects of the workflow step. A user selects and arranges the activities to create the workflow via the user interface. The metadata associated with each of the activities in the workflow is collected to create a persistent representation of the workflow. Users extend the workflow model by authoring custom activities.

  • Publication number: 20110199318
    Abstract: A user interface (UI) system calculates movements in a multi-layer graphical user interface. The UI system receives user input corresponding to gestures on a touchscreen. The UI system calculates a movement of a first layer in a first direction (e.g., a horizontal direction) at a first movement rate. For example, the first movement rate can be substantially equal to the movement rate of a gesture made by a user's finger or other object on the touchscreen. The UI system calculates movements of other layers substantially parallel to the movement of the first layer, at movement rates that differ from the first movement rate.
