Network-1 Technologies Reports US Patent Office Issues Reexamination Certificate
October 23, 2014
Network-1 Technologies, Inc. said that the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued a Reexamination Certificate for Network-1's Remote Power Patent (U.S Patent No. 6,218,930). In its release on Oct. 20, the Company said that the Certificate confirms the patentability of the challenged claims of the Remote Power Patent (claims 6, 8 and 9) without any amendment or modification. The USPTO also allowed fourteen new claims, bringing the total number of claims in the Remote Power Patent to 23 claims. No claims were rejected. The Remote Power Patent was reexamined by the USPTO based on an unknown third party's request for ex parte reexamination of certain claims of the Remote Power Patent. The request was granted by the USPTO in September 2012. The reexamination was stayed by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board in December 2012 pending the PTAB's Inter Partes Review of the Remote Power Patent.

AAXA P3X Pico Projector
October 17, 2014
The small, lightweight AAXA P3X Pico Projector ($249) can project media files from a memory card or USB thumb drive, or mirror what's showing on your computer's display. It's a good choice if you need to show content when you're out of reach of a wall socket, but overall image quality is merely adequate. This DLP-based projector has an LED light source, rated at 70 lumens of brightness, and a native wide 480p, aka WVGA (854-by-480) resolution. It can be powered either from the included AC adapter or its built-in lithium ion battery, which according to AAXA should last at least 2 hours on a single charge.

FULL TEXT SMART DIAGNOSTIC TECHS MAKE THE PROBLEM COME TO THEM. It's not unusual to encounter a System Lean Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) on a vehicle if you routinely work on Check Engine light problems. Vacuum leaks and fuel delivery problems are common causes for these common codes, and you might be tempted to focus immediately on these. But there are many other causes that can illuminate the MIL for the P0171 and P0174 DTCs that you also need to consider. Additional causes that can lead to these particular codes include Mass Airflow (MAF) sensor signal problems, voltage drop anywhere in the fuel delivery circuit, problems in the oxygen sensor inputs to the Engine Control Module (ECM), Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) problems, exhaust leaks, Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve calibration, dipstick sealing (mostly on European vehicles), engine mechanical problems and faulty ECMs. With so many possible causes to consider, you would think that it would take some time to find the cause of the P0171 - P0174 DTCs.
