  • Patent number: 10165072
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses that collect tracking data items into a plurality of data stores for one or more domain in response to resources received from the domains are described. Each tracking data item may be accessible for one of the domains. Relationships of the domains may be identified among the tracking data items across multiple data stores according to the resources received. One or more of the domains may be selected according to the identified relationships to control accessibility of the tracking data items for the domains. The data stores may be updated to prohibit accessing at least a portion of the tracking data items for the selected domains.

  • Publication number: 20180349659
    Abstract: An electronic device displays a media capture user interface that includes a media capture preview of objects in a field of view of the camera. While displaying the media capture user interface, the electronic device scans the field of view of the camera for data encoded in an optical machine-readable format. In accordance with a determination that the field of view of the camera includes data encoded in the optical machine-readable format that meets respective notification criteria, the electronic device displays a notification that indicates that the camera application has detected data encoded in the optical machine-readable format. In accordance with a determination that the field of view of the camera does not include data encoded in the optical machine-readable format that meets the respective notification criteria, the electronic device maintains display of the media capture user interface of the camera application without displaying the notification.

  • Publication number: 20140337424
    Abstract: In some implementations, a website can be certified by a push notification service operator to send push notifications to user devices. A web browser on the user's device can communicate with the website to advertise the user device's ability to receive push notifications. The website can provide to the web browser a certificate indicating that the website is authorized to utilize the push notification service. If the certificate is valid and has not been revoked, the browser can prompt the user to allow push notifications from the website. If the user authorizes push notifications, a device token can be provided to the website that allows the website to send push notifications to the user device through the push notification service. In some implementations, the web browser can be configured to provide websites access to APIs for accessing information stored on a user device.

  • Patent number: 7546375
    Abstract: Systems and methods for distributing applications across a server and one or more nodes in a network. When a node is turned on or booted, a node application is requested from the server and loaded on the node. The node application provides a user interface through which other feature applications are selected and run on the node. The node application loads/unloads selected applications and manages node resources for those applications. Each application is developed with a process portion that runs on the server and a user interface portion that is loaded on the node. The node application also provides support to the user interface portion of each application such that the applications may construct user interfaces using the available standards provided by the node application.
