  • Patent number: 10958876
    Abstract: Several ways are provided for a viewer of a movie to create a deep tag, that is, a bookmark for a segment of the movie. The deep tag can be associated with descriptive text and sent to an address provided by the viewer, either an e-mail address or an instant messaging address. Additionally, before the deep tag is created, it can be checked whether the content owner of the movie is known. If known, the content owner's rules, if any, regarding deep tagging are followed. If unknown, a set of registered content owners can be alerted of the presence of new content. When ownership of the new content is established, the already-created deep tags can be updated in accordance with the content owner's rules, if any, regarding deep tagging.

  • Patent number: 10795825
    Abstract: An electronic device includes at least one compression-decompression functional block and a hierarchy of cache memories with a first cache memory and a second cache memory. The at least one compression-decompression functional block receives data in an uncompressed state, compresses the data using one of a first compression or a second compression, and, after compressing the data, provides the data to the first cache memory for storage therein. When the data is retrieved from the first cache memory to be stored in the second cache memory, when the data is compressed using the first compression, the compression-decompression functional block decompresses the data to reverse effects of the first compression on the data, thereby restoring the data to the uncompressed state and provides the data compressed using the second compression or in the uncompressed state to the second cache memory for storage therein.

  • Patent number: 10540136
    Abstract: A method and an information handling system (IHS) renders a graphical user interface (GUI) from a remote device using a local storage. An interface controller detects a first event used to initiate access to the GUI at the remote device. The controller requests GUI frame buffer data corresponding to the first event, and GUI change data from the remote device. The GUI change data correspond to respective events that can trigger changes to the GUI. In response to receiving the requested data, the controller provides a first locally-rendered GUI using the GUI frame buffer data. The controller stores the GUI change data in local storage. The controller then detects a second event/interaction via the first locally-rendered GUI and retrieves from local storage a relevant portion of the GUI change data. The controller provides an updated locally-rendered GUI using the relevant portion of GUI change data.

  • Patent number: 9785332
    Abstract: A browser divides content pages into tiles for display on a user device, and updates the tiles that become “damaged” as the result of user interactions or other events. The browser may decide whether and/or when to update a damaged off-screen tile based partly or wholly on a predicted likelihood that the user will scroll to that tile or that the tile will otherwise become visible on the user device. This prediction may, for example, be based on one or more of the following: (1) the distance of the off-screen tile from the visible display area, (2) the past browsing/scrolling behaviors of the user and/or other users. The decision of whether or when to update the damaged off-screen tile may also be based on the cost (in terms of processing resources) of updating the tile, as may be estimated based on the processing resources used to initially generate the tile. In addition, the decision may be based on a measure of visual impact associated with deferring the update.

  • Patent number: 9727575
    Abstract: To provide an operation that can quickly copy or rearrange a file, a file system allows stored data to be shared among two or more files or within a file. The file system provides an operation that allows an extent from one file to be copied into an extent of another file, or into a different extent in the same file if the extents do not overlap. To support such an operation, the file system tracks the storage locations for stored data for extents of a file, and whether the stored data for an extent of a file is shared with any other file or by another portion of the same file. When stored data is shared, writing to an extent of a file that refers to the shared stored data invokes a write operation to a new extent on the storage device, and the tracked information for the affected extents is updated.

  • Patent number: 9633230
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for processing rendering engine workload of a graphics system in a secure fashion, wherein at least some security processing of the workload is offloaded from software-based security parsing to hardware-based security parsing. In some embodiments, commands from a given application are received by a user-mode driver (UMD), which is configured to generate a command buffer delineated into privileged and/or non-privileged command sections. The delineated command buffer can then be passed by the UMD to a kernel-mode driver (KMD), which is configured to parse and validate only privileged buffer sections, but to issue all other batch buffers with a privilege indicator set to non-privileged. A graphics processing unit (GPU) can receive the privilege-designated batch buffers from the KMD, and is configured to disallow execution of any privileged command from a non-privileged batch buffer, while any privileged commands from privileged batch buffers are unrestricted by the GPU.
