  • Patent number: 10824685
    Abstract: Systems and methods for range programming using a search query are disclosed. A method for range programming using a search query includes determining whether the search query comprises a range operation and identifying a target application to launch using a search application which is separate from the target application and based on the search query. A range of results to process with the target application can be identified using the search application and based on the search query. The results can be separately within the range in the context of the target application.

  • Patent number: 9858092
    Abstract: Systems and methods for contextually launching a target application are disclosed. A method for contextually launching a target application includes communicating data from the target application to a search application. The data can be registered in a search registrar associated with the search application. Input can be received from a user using the search application. The input from the user can be compared with the data in the search registrar to obtain a result. The target application can be launched within the context of the input from the user based on the result.

  • Patent number: 8990618
    Abstract: A system and method for partial fault tolerance in an embedded appliance is disclosed. The method comprises providing an embedded appliance having first and second digital storage locations, with the second location including a boot manager and a recovery operating system. An image instance of the operational section of the first digital storage location can be copied at a selected frequency to a selected location on the second digital storage location. Files in the image instance can be re-mapped to operate at the second digital storage location. The embedded appliance can be rebooted from the second digital storage location using the boot manager to load an operating system in the image instance to operate the embedded appliance from the image instance at the selected location on the second digital storage location when the operational section of the first digital storage location is inaccessible.

  • Patent number: 8315371
    Abstract: Methods are disclosed for programming shortcut keys on a computing device, such as a digital telephony device. One method comprises extracting user context information for a user from a server in communication with the digital telephony device. Key feature grouping information can be created based on the user context information. A key mapping layout can be generated for the digital telephony device by applying rules to designate an order in which selected groups in the key feature grouping information are assigned to selected keys on the digital telephony device to generate a key mapping layout. The keys on the digital telephony device can be programmed using the key mapping layout.
