Patent Filings from 谷歌’收购Apture和Katango:重点官方网投,YouTube滑块和智能社交媒体代理?

想象一下能够突出显示网页上的任何文本并根据该文本官方网投网络吗?或者,将视频或其他内容嵌入将出现并打开而无需启动新浏览器窗口的窗口的更简便方法。

Now imagine that your 谷歌 Plus Circles could engage in friend relationship management, being better at self organizing 通过 grouping people whom you add to your 谷歌 Plus Account 通过 whether they are co-workers, or if they live nearby, or the kind of company they work for, or the school that they went to or many other ways that might make circle management smarter and a little more fun. Now imagine that the technology behind that involves the use of intelligent social media agents that keep an eye on the social activity of your 联系s.

谷歌 revealed last Thursday that they acquired a couple of companies, seemingly both for the expertise and knowledge of the people employed 通过 those companies and the technology that they have developed. I found the patent filings that have been assigned to both companies to try to get a deeper glimpse at some of the technologies that both companies have developed.

One of the companies that 谷歌 acquired is 狂喜由Tristan Harris和 坎萨尔, a couple of Stanford students in 2007. The 狂喜 Website notes that the 狂喜 team will be joining 谷歌’s Chrome小组. That makes sense since 狂喜 specializes in making browser experiences richer 通过 proving text boxes that pop-out when you click upon links on a page. 狂喜 was supplying these types of features for a number of partner sites as well as a plugin that would work with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

第一张图片是Apture主页,其中注意到他们’已被Google收购。我强调了这个词“Google”在页面上,并且在带有标题的突出显示上方显示了一个标题框“Learn More”出现在其中。请注意,页面上还有几个链接,并且它们前面都有不同种类的图标,表示它们将启动显示特定类型信息的不同类型的框。在带有锚文本的链接前面“truly experience”是看起来像一本打开的书的图标。锚文本之前“Chrome Team”是一个看起来像电影胶片的图标。

狂喜's homepage with the word 谷歌 highlighted, and special icons in front of anchor text appearing on the page.

当我点击“Learn More,”信息/官方网投结果窗口将在页面上打开,而无需启动新的浏览器窗口。请注意,该框具有三个标签,第一个标签为“explore,”其中包括信息性注释,后跟官方网投结果。第二个标签为“videos,”并显示了一些视频以回应我突出显示的单词。第三个选项卡标记为图像,并包含一些图像以响应我突出显示的官方网投词。

在第三张图片中,我 ’ve点击了带有锚文本的链接“Chrome Team,” with the filmstrip icon in front of it. A 您Tube video appears about 谷歌 Chrome.

另一家公司是 加丹后, and they published a note on a page which redirects from the 加丹后.com page to an Amazon hosted page, that the company was acquired 通过 谷歌 and that they would be joining the 谷歌 Plus team. The chairman of the company is Yoav Shoham, a professor at Stanford University. The company was originally named CafeBots, and has described what they do in the past as 个人人群控制.

谷歌’s Bradley Horowitz, the Vice President of Product Management for 谷歌+ also announced the 加丹后 acquisition on November 10th.

狂喜 makes it easier to search from any page on the Web, and to more easily embed different types of content on web pages. Kantago could make managing your Circles on 谷歌 Plus much easier.

以下是USTPO提供的专利申请文件。它’两家公司可能都有更多的避风港’还没有出版。

结论

谷歌 has been pretty mum on some of the many acquisitions that they’在过去的一年中,有传言说大约有50个。一世’我不确定为什么他们决定宣布这些特殊收购,但事实是两家公司都有客户,他们将来可能不再支持。 加丹后提供了一个iPhone应用程序,可帮助组织Facebook Friends。狂喜’的技术已被许多网站使用,并作为Chrome,Firefox和Safari的插件。

The technologies are pretty interesting, and I do suspect that we will see them integrated into offerings from 谷歌 fairly soon. I don’t know if the 您Tube slider on 谷歌 Plus streams were from 狂喜, but they do seem to be a good match for the last of the 狂喜 patent filings.

那里’罗伯特·斯科布尔(Robert Scoble)和约夫·肖汉姆(Yoav Shoham)在Cruchbase上的一次非常有趣的采访’您花了一些时间在专利上之后值得一看,因为Yoav Shoham提到了他们所从事的工作背后的许多技术。“magic” and it’s a little fun to have a some sense of what the 魔法 might be.

A 谷歌 Plus post from Yee Lee of 加丹后 notes that today was going to be his first day of work at 谷歌.

关于17的想法“Patent Filings from 谷歌’收购Apture和Katango:重点官方网投,YouTube滑块和智能社交媒体代理?”

  1. 这看起来真的很有趣,谢谢分享。我必须承认我’m excited about the future possibilities of 谷歌 Plus –我希望他们继续推销它,但它不会’t become one of 谷歌’s failed products.

  2. 我总是很好奇地发现,其中有多少笔收购是为了获得工程师土地,他们想要的大部分是工程师的才华,而他们本身并不需要太多专利。我知道他们受到高度重视,但是工程师会单独(或几乎)完全创建一次收购活动吗?当然,如果他们有足够的才能引起所说的事件,那么他们可能创造了一些很棒的东西。但是也许“pretty great” is only something that amounts to a 20% project in 谷歌’s eyes.

  3. 谢谢比尔的来函。确实很有趣。事情进展很快。关于cruchbase的采访比较难理解,但是对即将发生的事情有很好的了解….

  4. 我本周实际上才刚开始使用G + ’因为它没有’还没有真正流行起来。很高兴看到这些启动和吸引人们的提示,我’我会从头开始弄清楚这件事。感觉就像我的第一个Facebook帐户!

  5. 嗨珍妮,

    I’m excited about the future of 谷歌 Plus, too.

    谷歌 has has some failures when it comes to social networks, but I think they’从大多数人那里学到了一些教训’ve been integrating into 谷歌 Plus. They’ve also made an effort to incorporate 谷歌 Plus more into services like Web search, with 谷歌 author profiles and 分享 and plusses showing up in those results. I think that may make a difference.

  6. 嗨,杰西卡,

    I’我曾经在这种情况下看到过“获得”一词,而我’我本人也想知道同样的事情。对于人才和技术而言,这两项交易似乎是平等的。

    谷歌 does seem to be more actively purchasing patents where available that seem to cover technologies that they are interested in, but they’他们对许多收购都保持沉默’在过去的几年中取得了成就。一世’我对这些技术是为了获取相关技术还是雇用其背后的人员而感到好奇。

    I do have to say that some of 谷歌’s 20% projects have ended up being some of the major services that 谷歌 offers, such as GMail.

  7. 嗨,西尔万,

    您’re welcome. 谷歌 is introducing a lot of new changes. Hopefully for them, not so many that they start alienating 谷歌 users.

    我以为Crunchbase采访增加了一些内容,但是如果您先尝试获得专利,我认为它会更有趣。特别是因为它使您对技术有了一个了解,Yoav Shoham在将其称为Katango时有点难以捉摸’他可以拥有的知识产权’不要透露太多。

  8. 克里斯,你好

    I signed up soon after 谷歌 Plus launched, and I’m happy that I’在这种情况下,它是最早的采用者之一。

    Good point about it feeling like your first 脸书 account. I have a little better sense of how I want to interact with people on 谷歌 Plus because of 脸书.

  9. 说实话我不’t think 谷歌 plus has made an impact in the social media world… Being part of a Brand like 谷歌 any site would get some prominence but then again, 脸书 still is doing a lot better… I’d say 谷歌 needs to really think out of the Box with its regional approach.

  10. 谷歌 is failing in the social world and simply acquiring patents isn’t going to change that. FaceBook has stepped up the game and has matched all of 谷歌’的创新。将是一个有趣的社会未来。

  11. 嗨,乌斯曼,

    谷歌 Plus has had many tens of millions join in a fairly short period of time, and author profiles and social sharing from 谷歌 Plus have been integrated into 谷歌’的网络官方网投,这是地球上最受欢迎的网站之一。我认为它可能有未来。

    I’我不太确定’s a good idea to compare 脸书 and 谷歌 directly – it’有点像比较苹果和橘子。

  12. 嗨,戴夫,

    谷歌 has been doing much more than acquiring patents and technologists from other companies, but I think it’s one indicator (like a canary in a coalmine) of 谷歌’s ambition and drive to succeed that they are busy building new and innovative features internally, and looking for new technologies from others outside of 谷歌.

    如果您观看了我发帖结束时链接到的Robert Scoble的视频,那么他似乎对Katango印象深刻’s technology.

    在Facebook建立官方网投引擎之前,我’m not sure that it’s fair to compare 谷歌 and 脸书. 谷歌 has too many advantages.
