  • Patent number: 9298274
    Abstract: In a mobile device, the strings that make up a current thread in application are stored in a buffer. A thread is a series of communications sent between a user of the mobile device and one or more other users, such as a series of text messages or a series of emails. When the user enters text to continue the current thread, characters of the entered text are compared against the strings stored in the buffer, and strings that have the entered text as a prefix are selected and displayed to the user as string predictions in a soft input panel. Alternatively, the strings in the buffer may be used to increase the probabilities of matching strings in a dictionary or model that is used to select string predictions.

  • Patent number: 8412960
    Abstract: An information processing device capable of communicating with a plurality of servers installed within a facility and method are provided. A storage unit stores server information including an installation position and a temperature of each of the servers within the facility. A detection unit detects a group of not-yet-powered-on servers from the plurality of servers. A calculation unit calculates an index value indicating a correlation of heat generation amounts between the not-yet-powered-on server and powered-on servers, based on the server information stored in the storage unit for each detected not-yet-powered-on server. A decision unit decides a server which becomes a power-on target, from the group of the not-yet-powered-on servers, based on the calculated index value of each not-yet-powered-on server.
