  • Publication number: 20240089646
    Abstract: Wireless earpieces having external antenna features are described. The wireless earpiece can include a housing in which various earpiece componentry is housed. The housing includes a first major surface, a second major surface opposite the first major surface, and various peripheral side wall segments that extend around the first and second major surfaces to thereby form an enclosed housing. The entirety of an anterior portion of the peripheral side wall can serve as the antenna for the wireless earpiece. The entirety of a posterior portion of the peripheral side wall can serve as a grounding element for the wireless earpiece. The grounding element can also extend to include portions of the inferior and superior portions of the peripheral side wall.

  • Publication number: 20240078586
    Abstract: In selected embodiments a recommendation generator builds a network of interrelationships between venues, reviewers and users based on their attributes and reviewer and user reviews of the venues. Each interrelationship or link may be positive or negative and may accumulate with other links (or anti-links) to provide nodal links the strength of which are based on commonality of attributes among the linked nodes and/or common preferences that one node, such as a reviewer, expresses for other nodes, such as venues. The links may be first order (based on a direct relationship between, for instance, a reviewer and a venue) or higher order (based on, for instance, the fact that two venue are both liked by a given reviewer). The recommendation engine in certain embodiments determines recommended venues based on user attributes and venue preferences by aggregating the link matrices and determining the venues which are most strongly coupled to the user.

  • Patent number: 11895453
    Abstract: A wireless communication adapter device includes an enclosure and a communication device base. The communication device base includes a first switch and a wireless communication transceiver. The communication device base is inserted into the enclosure so that the communication device base can move along an axis within the enclosure from a first base position and a second base position. Such movement actuates the first switch against the enclosure to initiate one or more communication operations of the wireless communication transceiver in the communication device base.
