KDE 3.0 included UI tab elements that could be placed wherever you liked for whatever purpose (including tabbed toolbars). You could also select whether or not you wanted to display text, icons, or text+icons. 99% of the time applications put these tabs on the left or right of the page but I don't think that matters from the standpoint of the patent ...

Gregg Shorthand built words using stems and inflections from the 1930s at least through the 1990s. 'Brief Forms' and extrapolated inflections were common. Several good articles exist, including this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregg_shorthand Other older shorthand systems including Pitman and Duployan had similar structures. Machine stenography is still ...

"Towards the Use of Word Stems and Suffixes for Statistical Machine Translation" (2004) discusses this technique. 2 "Determining that the words are 'out-of-vocabulary'" seems trivial, but they reference this: the system is able to produce correct or approximatively correct translations even if the full form has not been seen in the ...

Twitter and other social networking services have been replacing regular URLs with trackable URLs (or, more broadly and obviously, using ANY method of tracking user clicks on a site to see who is recommending what) for many years. Here is just the first article I was able to find: http://techcrunch.com/2009/08/25/twitter-wants-to-track-your-clicks/ Not ...

The GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) has a very similar UI where you have tabs full of controls that are in subgroups. According to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GIMP_version_history Their 2.0 release introduced the "tabs and docks system": "March 23, 2004: Many new tool options, GIMP now using GTK+ 2.x graphical toolkit.

I realise the application has already been finally rejected, but I want to add another important piece of prior art anyway: JPEG2000, from… 2000. Any compliant decoder must be able to scale and composite an image stored at multiple resolutions.

It would be very broad - (which doesn't mean bad or invalid assuming it was novel and non obvious at the time of filing) without one of its key limitations. All of the independent claims require a weighting factor to be adjusted in what seems to an odd and unnecessary way. Looking at claim 1: to avoid this claim a system could do steps a) and b) but not ...

The term "user" in the description of the patent makes it unclear what user role the configuring of search results applies to i.e. the administrator of the application (for example of a website who would configure a search task for use by end users) or the end user of the application (who would submit and get the results of a search). This posting addresses ...

I'd look into Tableau Desktop and it's ability to run extracts (execute query/receive results) and then in the desktop client you can do operations, create cross tabs and re-render the results received (apply user configured ranking rules/display results).

This article from 1994 covers PC-KIMMO version 2, a then-new computer program designed to perform "morphological analysis" on words in natural languages. Examples are given in the article for English, but it is strongly hinted that the analysis could easily be adapted for other languages, and they mention several languages (including Finnish) which ...
