Application server providing personalized voice enabled web application services using extensible markup language documents
Patent 8,099,283
A unified web-based voice messaging system provides voice application control between a web browser and an application server via an hypertext transport protocol (HTTP) connection on an Internet Protocol (IP) network. The application server, configured for executing a voice application defined by XML documents, selects an XML document for execution of a corresponding voice application operation based on a determined presence of a user-specific XML document that specifies the corresponding voice application operation. The application server, upon receiving a voice application operation request from a browser serving a user, determines whether a personalized, user specific XML document exists for the user and for the corresponding voice application operation. If the application server determines the presence of the personalized XML document for a user-specific execution of the corresponding voice application operation, the application server dynamically generates a personalized HTML page having media content and control tags for personalized execution of the voice application operation; however if the application server determines an absence of the personalized XML document for the user-specific execution of the corresponding voice application operation, the application server dynamically generates a generic HTML page for generic execution of the voice application operation. Hence, a user can personalize any number of voice application operations, enabling a web-based voice application to be completely customized or merely partially customized.

Stretchable nonwoven web and method therefor
Patent 8,093,161
The invention relates to nonwoven fabrics containing polymeric multiple component fibers which include a core component and a plurality of wing components attached to the core. The polymeric core component has an elasticity that is greater than the elasticity of at least one of the wing polymeric components. The fibers assume a spiral twist configuration in which the plurality of wings substantially spiral about the core. In a preferred embodiment, the nonwoven fabrics have elastic stretch and recovery properties with a textile-like hand.

Multi-directional lighting fixture
Patent 8,092,040
The multi-directional lighting fixture includes a lighting fixture having a substantially elongated opaque housing with first and second ends with an open top for emitting light in an upward direction and a longitudinal slot along the bottom surface of the housing extending between the first and second ends. The longitudinal slot includes a shielding material, such as a louver or cover, with a predetermined degree of light translucence. The housing has a substantially elliptical cross section tapering towards one end of the housing. The ends of the housing have elliptical translucent members that can transmit lighting horizontally and radially outward from the interior of the housing. Two or more housings can be coupled together in series.

Plastic food container with leveraged, conical, area seal
Patent 8,091,732
A food container made of thin plastic sheet material comprises a bowl and a lid, each having a peripheral sealing region with a downwardly facing channel generally shaped like an inverted “U”. The outward edges of the channels are lockingly engaged. The channels mate and engage to form a primary seal at a conical interface and a secondary seal at a rib. The rib may be on either the base, the lid, or both. Leverage provided by elastic forces in the lid’s channel tightens the seals.

Replication management with undo and redo capabilities
Patent 8,095,827
A method for replicating a volume of data including selecting a target storage box to receive a physical copy of the actual volume of data stored on the source storage box for replication of the actual volume of data, selecting a point in time storage box to receive a physical copy of actual data stored on the target storage box, physically copying actual data stored on the target storage box to the point in time storage box, performing the replication of the actual volume of data by initiating the physical copying on the target storage box of the actual volume of data, and selectively undoing the physical copying on the target storage box of the actual volume of data by replacing the current actual data stored on the target storage box with the physical copy of actual target storage box data stored on the point in time storage box.

Priority and bandwidth specification at mount time of NAS device volume
Patent 8,095,675
A method for specifying input/output (I/O) settings for a virtual machine that includes specifying a bandwidth for the virtual machine, specifying a priority for the virtual machine, sending a mount request for a volume on a network attached storage (NAS) device by the virtual machine, where the bandwidth and priority are transmitted to the NAS device as part of the mount request, and receiving a mount handle by the virtual machine, where the mount handle is associated with the volume.
