  • Publication number: 20220264210
    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.

  • Publication number: 20220207575
    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: 10959007
    Abstract: A headset in accordance with an embodiment of the present technology includes a headpiece, an earpiece, an arm extending therebetween, and a cord extending through the arm. The arm includes elongate first and second segments through which the arm is operably connected to the earpiece and the headpiece, respectively. The first and second segments have a telescoping arrangement such that the arm is movable between a lengthened state and a shortened state. The arm further includes a hinge operable to rotate the arm about an axis and thereby move the arm relative to the headpiece between a folded state and an unfolded state. Increased slack in the cord preferentially gathers within an interior region of the second segment when the arm moves from the lengthened state toward the shortened state and when the arm moves from the folded state toward the unfolded state.

  • Patent number: 10959015
    Abstract: An earpiece in accordance with at least some embodiments of the present technology includes a housing and a speaker within the housing. The earpiece also includes an antenna at least partially embedded within a wall of the housing. The wall includes a window portion and an opaque portion extending around the window portion. The antenna is visible from outside the housing via the window portion. The window portion includes a transparent filler within an elongate groove in the wall. The antenna includes a radiating element within the groove, and feeding and shorting pins extending through respective openings between the groove to an interior of the housing. Making the earpiece can include disposing filler material over the radiating element, increasing a hardness of the filler material, and abrading an outer surface of the wall at the filler material to form a smooth surface.

  • Publication number: 20210051387
    Abstract: An earpiece in accordance with at least some embodiments of the present technology includes a housing and a speaker within the housing. The earpiece can also include an earbud and a protrusion carried by the housing. The earbud can extend from the housing toward a canal of a user's ear when the earpiece is mounted to the user's ear. The protrusion can be at least partially received within a recess at least partially defined by a cymba concha of the user's ear and by an anterior ridge of an antihelix of the user's ear when the earpiece is mounted to the user's ear. The protrusion can include resilient members and intervening slots. The individual resilient members can be configured to preferentially bend relative to the housing in a direction parallel to an adjacent length of the anterior ridge when the earpiece is mounted to the user's ear.

  • Patent number: 10827250
    Abstract: A headset in accordance with an embodiment of the present technology includes a headpiece, an earpiece, a yoke rotatably connected to the earpiece, and an arm extending between the yoke and the headpiece. The yoke at least partially defines a channel including a constriction at which a transverse cross-sectional area of the channel is non-circular. The arm includes a foot at least partially disposed within the channel. The foot is shaped to move through the constriction or be blocked from moving through the constriction depending on a rotational position of the arm relative to the yoke. The headset further includes a plug at least partially disposed within the channel. The plug restricts rotation of the arm relative to the yoke and thereby prevents movement of the foot out of the channel and corresponding separation of the arm from the yoke.
