|20130268545||TRANSPARENT ADAPTIVE FILE TRANSFORM - Embodiments of methods, systems, and services for transparent adaptive file transform are described. In one embodiment a method for transparent adaptive file transform is performed by a data processing device. The method may include automatically detecting a data transfer addressed to an external data storage. The method may also include redirecting data associated with the data transfer to a data transformer. Additionally, the method may include applying one or more data transforms to the data associated with the data transfer to generate a transformed data set. In an embodiment, the method may also include transferring the transformed data set to the external data storage. In one embodiment, the external data storage is a cloud storage facility.||10-10-2013|
|20080223089||MEDIA BASE SECURITY DEVICE AND METHOD OF USE - A media base security device and method of use is disclosed. According to one aspect, a media base security device can include a lock rod mechanism coupled to a portion of a media base housing including a security lock aperture operable to receive a security lock. The media base security device can also include a release lever accessible external to the housing. The release lever can be operable to release the media base housing when coupled to a portable computer system. The release lever can include a lock rod seat operable to engage a lock rod extending from the lock rod mechanism in response to locking the security lock.||09-18-2008|
|20080218937||VARIABLY ORIENTATED CAPACITIVE ELEMENTS FOR PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARDS AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURING SAME - Variably oriented capacitive elements for printed circuit boards (PCBs) and method of manufacturing the same. In one form the disclosure, a PCB can include a first multiple-layered capacitor including a first orientation and placed along a surface operable to mount electronic components.
