OPERATION PANEL FOR ELECTRONIC DEVICE

Hewett-Packard Developmen...

1. A method for displaying an operation panel comprising multiple levels of menus on a screen of an electronic device, comprising:displaying, by a processor of the electronic device, a first menu of an operational panel on the screen, wherein the first menu comprises a central section of a circle, and the circle is divided into fan-shaped sections to represent items under the first menu;
receiving, by the processor, a user selection of a first item of the first menu;
in response to the user selection of the first item, enlarging, by the processor, the fan-shaped section of the first item to accommodate a display of subordinate items of the first item while reducing the fan-shaped sections of remaining items of the first menu;
displaying by the processor, the subordinate items of the first item along an outer circumferential portion of the fan-shaped section of the first item while maintaining the display of the fan-shaped sections of the first item and the remaining items of the first menu;
in response to a user selection of one of the subordinate items of the first item, hiding, by the processor, the first menu that includes the first item;
displaying, by the processor, a second menu on the screen to represent a menu of the selected subordinate item, wherein the second menu comprises a central section representing the selected subordinate item and a plurality of item sections or identifying subordinate items of the second menu; and
positioning, by the processor, the plurality of item sections substantially radially outward from the central section of the second menu.

NON-NEWTONIAN INKJET INKS

Hewett-Packard Developmen...

1. A non-Newtonian inkjet ink, comprising:a first metal oxide nanoparticle selected from the group consisting of substantially spherical or non-spherical silica particles, alumina particles, zinc oxide particles, iron oxide particles, titanium oxide particles, and combinations thereof, the first metal oxide nanoparticle having a particle size of 10 nm or less, and the first metal oxide nanoparticle present in an amount ranging from about 5% to about 15% by weight based on a total weight of the non-Newtonian inkjet ink;
a second metal oxide nanoparticle selected from the group consisting of alumina, titanium oxide, substantially spherical silica, anisotropic silica, and combinations thereof, the second metal oxide nanoparticle having at least one dimension greater than 10 nm, and the second metal oxide nanoparticle present in an amount ranging from 0.25% to 10% by weight based on the total weight of the non-Newtonian inkjet ink;
a colorant in an amount ranging from about 0.5% to about 10% by weight based on the total weight of the non-Newtonian inkjet ink;
an organic solvent in an amount ranging from about 5% to about 50% by weight based on the total weight of the non-Newtonian inkjet ink; and
a balance of water.

DETERMINING LOCATIONS FOR LOCATION SIGNATURES

Hewett-Packard Developmen...

1. A system, comprising:a processor;
a memory resource comprising instructions, that when executed, cause the processing resource to:
determine a location signature having a first time stamp based on a location of a computing device of a user;
determine whether the location signature matches a known signature having a second time stamp;
determine a threshold quantity of times the computing device of the user has been prompted for the location;
prompt the computing device of the user for the location of the user based on the location signature not matching the known signature, wherein the computing device prompts the user when the determined quantity of prompts are below the determined threshold;
compare the first time stamp of the location signature of the computing device to other location signatures having other time stamps to determine an accuracy; and
determine that the prompted location is accurate based on the comparison of the location signature having the first time stamp to other location signatures having other time stamps.

VIRTUAL MACHINE DEVICE ACCESS

Hewett-Packard Developmen...

1. A method of accessing at least one computer device from a virtual machine, said method comprising:accessing, from a control domain, a list of at least one device;
for each device in the list of devices, determining whether the device is to be exposed to the virtual machine;
creating a table of devices determined to be exposed to the virtual machine; and
providing the table of devices to the virtual machine,wherein determining whether the device is to be exposed to the virtual machine is based on at least one device attribute, wherein the determining of whether the device is to be exposed to the virtual machine comprises the control domain referencing a lookup table identifying attributes of basic input/output system (BIOS) devices, wherein the attributes are to serve as a basis for selectively excluding or including particular BIOS devices presently in a computer system for being exposed to the virtual machine and wherein the creating of the table of devices determined to be exposed to the virtual machine comprises selectively adding a candidate BIOS device from the list of devices to the table of devices based upon a comparison of attributes of the candidate BIOS device to the attributes of the lookup table.

LIGHT GUIDE FOR FLUID TESTING CELLS

Hewett-Packard Developmen...

1. An apparatus comprising:a body forming a slot;
testing cells along a length of the slot, each testing cell comprising:
a microfluidic channel extending from the slot;
a pump to move fluid from the slot into the channel;
a discharge passage through which fluid exits the channel;
a fluid discharger to discharge fluid from the channel through the discharge passage;
a fluid tagging dispenser; and
a photosensor; and
a light guide to receive light from an external light source and serially transmit the light to the microfluidic channel of each of the testing cells.

ELECTROACOUSTIC DEVICES FOR A COMPUTING DEVICE

Hewett-Packard Developmen...

1. A computing device comprising:a base member;
a display member rotatably connected to the base member via a hinge, wherein the display member is to cover a top surface of the base member when the device is in a closed position; and
an electroacoustic device coupled to a flexible material, the electroacoustic device residing within a cavity along the top surface of the base member, wherein when the display member is to be opened from the closed position of the device, the electroacoustic device is to rotate out from the cavity to a first position and wherein
the electroacoustic device, after rotating out of the cavity, is extendable to a second position by extending the flexibly material.
