Google Patents Non-Payment Event POS Terminal ID Method

Google has been awarded a new patent for a method to identify the geolocation of point-of-sale (POS) terminals without the need for payment event data. Filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) under patent number “US20180225645,” the method was tested on an unnamed device and used to scan for ‘preselected’ events. Those events are cataloged with an ‘account system’ designed to count them to a pre-specified threshold. The geolocation of those events is then used to pinpoint specific POS terminals in order to prep the system to rapidly deliver additional “content” to users if they happen to enter one of those locations. That’s accomplished by saving locations to the account upon entry so that when the user decides to use the terminal, the location-discovery po

The Ford Ranger Raptor debuted back in February, just not for the U.S. market. Since then we’ve seen a left-hand drive Ranger Raptor with manufacturer license plates rolling on American soil. We’ve seen coy “what if” messages from Ford about the high-performance truck that allude to a North American presence. Now, the folks at Ranger5g.com may have uncovered definitive proof that a U.S. Spec baby Raptor is coming. Patent filings in Australia are said to show a different Raptor design than what the manufacturer’s Australian website shows. That alone isn’t damning evidence, but the filing also lists a U.S. patent application number for the Ranger Raptor. Now that’s interesting. Read all about the Ranger: The number is 29/634999 and before you go hammeri

However, there ar

Google Patents Space-Saving Circuit Design For Smartphones

Google won a new patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) intended to reduce the amount of space taken up by an electronic device’s circuit board connections in traditional layouts. Filed under patent number ‘US20180228039,’ the documents describe what looks like a smartphone utilizing three circuit boards, with the third serving the additional purpose of acting as a series of connectors. That third board can also run perpendicular to the device’s display, off to the side of its built-in battery, or underneath it. The configuration could use a flexible or printed circuit but seems to cover just about any layout of those within its scope. Any of those will generate space savings, according to the filing, and the use of that extra room can vary widely. Among
