  • Patent number: 10019412
    Abstract: A user device may receive a web page having multiple different types of content (e.g., text, images, videos, etc.). The user device may identify the different types of content, and may generate reformatted pages that each include a particular type of content associated with the web page. For instance, one reformatted page may include text content of the web page, without including image content of the web page (and/or vice versa). The reformatted pages may include resized and/or repositioned versions of the original content (e.g., resized and/or reformatted images and/or text).

  • Patent number: 9971501
    Abstract: An approach is provided for rendering a representation of a three-dimensional object in a user interface. The approach includes determining an arrangement of one or more user interface elements based on user profile information, content information, contextual information, or a combination thereof. The approach also includes rendering a representation of a three-dimensional object in a user interface, wherein the representation includes one or more surface segments. The approach also includes associating the one or more user interface elements respectively with the one or more surface segments based on the arrangement. The user interaction input manipulates the representation of the three dimensional object within in a virtual three-dimensional space to expose the one or more user interface elements associated with the one or more surface segments that are visible in the user interface.

  • Patent number: 9317184
    Abstract: A device may extract menu information associated with a first application. The menu information may identify hierarchical menu items corresponding to at least two levels of a menu hierarchy associated with a first menu of the first application. The device may receive configuration information that controls a manner in which the hierarchical menu items are to be provided for display. The device may execute the first application to cause first information, associated with the first application, to be provided for display. The device may execute a second application that provides the hierarchical menu items for display. The second application may be different from the first application. The device may provide the hierarchical menu items for display concurrently, via a second menu overlaid on the first information associated with the first application, based on the configuration information and further based on executing the second application.

  • Patent number: 9302584
    Abstract: A user device may be used to prevent a driver of a vehicle from driving while drowsy. The user device may create a driver profile for the driver and collect driving data while the driver is driving the vehicle. The driver profile may include information regarding the driver's propensity to drive while drowsy and the driving data may include information regarding whether the driver is exhibiting drowsy behaviors and how long the driver has been driving continuously. The user device may determine whether the driver is drowsy based on the driver profile and the driving data, and may respond in one or more ways, such as by altering the driver with an audio signal, providing the driver with a map to a nearby rest area, activating a braking system of the vehicle, warning nearby drivers about the driver being drowsy, contacting a parent or guardian of the driver, etc.
