Patent number 8185823 involves zoom indication for stabilizing unstable video clips in apps such as iMovie and Final Cut Pro X. Randy Ubillos is the inventor.
Patent number 8182638 is for a media player with a machine windowed undercut and transparent wall disposed therein. Think the iPod classic and iPod nano. The inventors are Douglas Joseph Webere, Pinida Jan Moolsintong and Stephen P. Zadesky.
Patent number 8184943 involves a method of scanning content comprises receiving an input signal indicating that content being displayed is to be scanned, sensing a duration of the received input signal, and scanning the content at a rate based at least in part on the sensed duration of the received input. The inventors are Rainer Brodersen, Jeffrey Robbin, Thomas Michael Madden, Rachel Claire Goldeen, Jeffrey Ma and Kevin Arnold.
Patent number 8185533 is for a system for browsing through a music catalog using correlation metrics of a knowledge base of mediacasts. Francisco J. Martin, Jim Shur and Marc Torrens are the inventors.
Patent number 8185706 involves copyback optimization for system memory. In a copyback or read operation for a non-volatile memory subsystem, data page change indicators are used to manage transfers of data pages between a register in non-volatile memory and a controller that is external to the non-volatile memory. Nir Jacob Wakrat and Mark AlanHelm are the inventors.
Patent number 8185674 involves a system having a plurality of buffers for providing audio for synchronized playback to multiple audio devices. The inventors are Jeffrey C. Moore, William G. Stewart and Gerhard H. Lengeling.
Patent number 8185749 is for systems, methods, computer readable media and special purpose processors for obfuscating code. The method includes extracting an operation within program code, selecting a formula to perform the equivalent computation as the extracted operation, and replacing the extracted operation with the selected formula. The inventors are Mathieu Ciet, Augustin J. Farrugia, Filip Toma Paun and Jean-Francois Riendeau.
Patent number 8185822 involves image application performance optimization. Some embodiments provide a method that from a source external to a device, imports a first image and a lower resolution second image that corresponds to the first image into the device. The inventors are Nikhil Bhatt, Alex Wallace, Curt Bianchi, Mark Kawano and Greg Gilley.
Patent number 8185843 is for managing a user interface using control panels. Nikhil Bhatt and Clem Holloman are the inventors.
