20110128384 United States Patent Application
Assignee: Apple Inc. Cupertino.

(extract) [0004] Based on the decoded data, a device can display information to a user or modify an operation of the device. In some embodiments, a device can, based on receive infrared data, display information to a user relating to an object near the user. For example, an infrared emitter can be located near an object and generate infrared signals with encoded data that includes information about that object. An electronic device can then receive the infrared signals, decode the data and display the information about the object to the user. In some embodiments, a device can, based on received infrared data, disable a function of the device. For example, an infrared emitter can be located in areas where picture or video capture is prohibited, and the emitter can generate infrared signals with encoded data that includes commands to disable the recording functions of devices. An electronic device can then receive the infrared signals, decode the data and temporarily disable the device’s recording function based on the command.

The Week in Education

Filed under: — site admin @ 7:32 am


One of England’s biggest exam boards has been forced to apologise after pupils were set an impossible question in an AS-level maths paper.
OCR promised to take the error into account when marking the exam, amid students’ concerns that the mistake could affect their university places.
The question, which was worth eight marks and 11% of the paper, was impossible to solve due to a miscalculation of an equation.
Students were presented with a diagram showing a network of tracks in a forest. The distances between points on the network were also set out.
Students were then asked to find the shortest route to walk along every track, starting and ending at the same point. The given length was supposed to be equal to an equation set out in the paper.
But OCR admitted that it failed to calculate the length properly – meaning the shortest route failed to match the mathematical equation.


Brasilia – In another laughable embarassment involving official books sponsored by the Brazilian Ministery of Education and Culture, a mathematics book distributed to more than 400,000 students in public school teaches that 10 minus 7 is equal to 4. The wrong equation is the latest scandal for the Ministry in charge of editing and publishing books that are used in the whole nation, and tarnishes the official institution in charge of education and culture.
