METHOD FOR INPUTTING INSTRUCTION AND PORTABLE ELECTRONIC DEVICE AND COMPUTER READABLE RECORDING MEDIUM

Wistron Corporation, New...

1. A method for inputting instruction on a portable electronic device having a touch screen, the method comprising:
detecting a plurality of taps applied on the touch screen;
determining whether a plurality of tap positions corresponding to the plurality of taps belongs to a same group according
to a distance between each of the tap positions corresponding to the plurality of taps;

when the plurality of tap positions corresponding to the plurality of taps does not belong to the same group, dividing the
plurality of tap positions corresponding to the plurality of taps to a plurality of groups, generating a plurality of group
flags corresponding to the plurality of groups and sorting the plurality of group flags to generate a group flag sequence,
wherein an order of the plurality of group flags in the group flag sequence corresponds to a tap order of the plurality of
taps,

when the plurality of tap positions corresponding to the plurality of taps belong to the same group, generating the group
flag sequence comprising a single group flag; and

generating an operating instruction according to the group flag sequence.

REMOVABLE CAGE AND ELECTRONIC APPARATUS

Wistron Corporation, Hsi...

1. A removable cage, capable of being installed in an apparatus casing, the apparatus casing comprising a first constraint
part and a second constraint part, the removable cage comprising:
a cage body for carrying an electronic module;
a carry handle for carrying the cage body, the carry handle comprising a handle body, a pivotally-connecting part, and a pushing
part, the handle body and the pushing part being oppositely connected to the pivotally-connecting part, the pivotally-connecting
part being pivotally connected to the cage body, the pivotally-connecting part having a lock slot; and

a locking mechanism disposed on the cage body, the locking mechanism comprising a latching part and an unlocking part, the
latching part being capable of being engaged into lock slot so that the carry handle is fixed relative to the cage body for
carrying the cage body, the unlocking part being dynamically connected to the latching part and capable of being driven to
disengage the latching part from the lock slot;
wherein when the removable cage is placed into the apparatus casing in an insertion direction, the unlocking part is driven
to disengage the latching part from the lock slot so that the carry handle is capable of rotating toward a side of the cage
body in a rotation direction and the pushing part pushes against the first constraint part, and the carry handle pivots about
a fulcrum, where the pushing part contacts the first constraint part, to move the cage body in the insertion direction further
by the pivotally-connecting part;wherein when the carry handle rotates away from the cage body in a direction reverse to the rotation direction, the pushing
part departs from the first constraint part and pushes against the second constraint part, and the carry handle pivots about
a fulcrum, where the pushing part contacts the second constraint part, to move the cage body in a direction reverse to the
insertion direction by the pivotally-connecting part.

ELECTRONIC DEVICE HAVING MULTI-DIRECTIONAL ADJUSTABLE SPEAKER

Wistron Corporation, New...

1. An electronic device, comprising:
a main unit including a first housing that has a groove, said groove having an opening that is in communication with the outside,
a limiting section that extends inwardly from said opening, and a stop portion receiving section that is in communication
with said limiting section, a minimum width of said stop portion receiving section being greater than a minimum width of said
limiting section; and a speaker including a second housing, a speaker element set that is contained in said second housing,
and an adjusting rod that protrudes from said second housing, said adjusting rod having a rod body that extends through said
limiting section of said groove of said first housing, and a stop portion that is connected at an end of said rod body, that
is received in said stop portion receiving section, and that is rotatable relative to said stop portion receiving section,
an outer diameter of said stop portion being greater than the minimum width of said limiting section; wherein through the
cooperation of said adjusting rod of said speaker and said groove of said main unit, said speaker is multi-directionally adjustable
relative to said main unit, wherein said first housing has a recessed structure, a side surface, and a speaker receiving surface
connected to said side surface and defining said recessed structure, at least said speaker receiving surface defining a receiving
space for receiving said speaker, said groove being disposed at a junction of said side surface and said speaker receiving
surface, and having a first boundary at said speaker receiving surface and a second boundary at said side surface; wherein
when said second housing of said speaker is received in said receiving space, said rod body of said adjusting rod of said
speaker is located at said first boundary of said groove, and as said adjusting rod moves toward said second boundary, said
second housing moves relative to said first housing of said main unit and changes an orientation and is removed from said
receiving space.
