  • Patent number: 10387486
    Abstract: When image information is transmitted from a first communication device, a server acquires a storyboard ID, a user ID, a photographing date/time, and the like contained in the image information. Furthermore, the server compares the storyboard ID and the user ID with the storyboard ID and the user ID in the storyboard information, specifies the registration destination of the image registration information corresponding to the image information, and registers them. Furthermore, the server generates a layout screen on which the images are displayed in chronological order based on the image registration information and the layout information.

  • Patent number: 9185470
    Abstract: Features of content may be identified using a server that is coupled with a client unit via a bandwidth-limited communications link. In one embodiment, the client unit forwards a subset of representations of the content, such as a lossy compressed version of an image, to the server. The server analyzes the image and forwards information regarding the features included in the content to the client unit. If the server determines that a sufficient number of representations are not available, the server requests the client unit to forward additional representations. An embodiment of the present invention reduces usage of the bandwidth used by the bandwidth-limited communications link by having the server request subsets of representations of the content rather than transmitting all representations for remote processing in a manner supporting a division of labor by the client unit and the server.

  • Patent number: 8949709
    Abstract: A web client is controlled to actively ignore scripts in certain portions of a web document using control instructions in the form of a special pair of markup language “tags.” A tag pair of this type is defined by a first tag, and a second tag paired with the first tag to form the tag pair. Each of the first and second tags includes a same identifier, and the tag pair is adapted to be recognized by a browser interpreter to instruct the web client to ignore given information located with the tag pair. Thus, when a web document is received by a web client, it is parsed (by the interpreter) in the usual manner. Upon determining that the tag pair is present, the browser bypasses (ignores) given information (typically, a script) located with the tag pair. Bypassing the script reduces the possibility that the script can be used for malicious purposes, such as an XSS attack.

  • Patent number: 8806344
    Abstract: A system for displaying files over a local area network or over the Internet. The method includes the steps of defining headings for either non-comparative information or comparative information within any company or government entity or within any vertical market, listing either hierarchical information or the products or services of vendors in a vertical market, including vendors that do not have a Web presence, and providing a means of soliciting products or services or other information not listed. The step of displaying files eliminates the wait for the latency period of successive server round trips after the first server round trip, saving user functional engagement time. The method allows the user to disconnect the user computer from the Internet once all database information files are downloaded, and, since any subsequent information files viewed are resident in the user computer, the current method is faster than existing methods.

  • Patent number: 8775947
    Abstract: Embodiments include a program for transferring of data from a source computer to a location on a target computer utilizing a drag-and-drop operation and a spring-loaded portal. I/O devices are monitored for mouse input that includes coordinates of a mouse pointer. Whether an end-user is utilizing the mouse pointer to perform the drag-and-drop operation is determined. The spring-loaded portal is expanded from a closed position to an open position. A screen snapshot image of the location on the target computer is retrieved and overlaid on the spring-loaded portal. The transferring of data from the source computer to the location on the target computer is executed, wherein the location on the target computer is previewable at the source computer through the spring-loaded portal. Whether to abort the transferring of data is determined. The spring-loaded portal is minimized from the open position to the closed position.

  • Patent number: 8762836
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide for the efficient application of a system font mapping to a design. Specific embodiments of the invention involve creating a design environment for a user that is configured to display a design. The design environment allows a user to apply a design font to text in the design. The user is also allowed to define a mapping from the design font to a target font. These embodiments also include generating a markup language representation of the design and applying the mapping to the design. The text is linked to the design font using an encoding prior to the generating step, and the text is linked to fonts in the markup language representation using a different encoding.

  • Patent number: 8745507
    Abstract: A disclosed method of serving web page requests includes detecting a client request for a web page that contains an object. A preloader application is invoked to execute while the object is downloading to the client. The preloader application displays a preloader message during at least part of the downloading interval. At least a part of the preloader message is an advertisement or is otherwise unrelated to a progress of the downloading of the object. A size of the object may exceed a specified threshold and/or a type of the object may match any of a set of predetermined object types. The set of predetermined object types may include a Java® object type, a Flash® object type, or another object type suitable for implementing motion graphics. In some embodiments, the preloader application resides on a third party web site.

  • Patent number: 8701015
    Abstract: A method and system are provided for a user interface that enables control of a device via respiratory and/or tactual input. A mobile device comprising a graphical user interface may receive data from a second device and/or locally from within the mobile device. The data may be associated with and/or mapped to multimedia content that may be retrievable from a content source. The content source may be external to the mobile device and the second device. The associating and/or mapping may occur at either the mobile device or the second device and the associated or mapped data may be operable to function as at least a portion of the graphical user interface of the mobile device. The graphical user interface may be customized utilizing the data that is associated and/or mapped to the media content. The second device may map the received data to the media content.

  • Patent number: 8701051
    Abstract: The delivery of targeted advertisements (ads) to wireless mobile handheld display devices (MHDDs) with client specific advertisement and dynamic content for response and feedback is becoming important in advertising. As the return for ads on MHDDs becomes higher, there is a push to show larger and more interactive ads on devices that have small displays. This has created a need to maximize the area available for ad viewing. The need for larger viewing area reduces the area available for call-to-action response enabling switches or inserts on the screen for customer interaction. To overcome this deficiency and provide the necessary end-to-end response capability, hot-spots on the ad image are provided as call-to-action response regions without limitation on the ad viewing area. The use of such hot-spots provides users of MHDDs a preferred interaction mechanism for responding to the advertisement, while maintaining a large ad viewing area.
