A pivot structure includes a base, a bracket, an elastic member and a positioning assembly. The bracket is rotatably connected to the base. The elastic member is disposed on the base. The positioning assembly includes a linkage member and a sleeve. The linkage member is pivoted to the bracket and has a positioning portion. The sleeve is pivoted to the base. The sleeve is fitted around the linkage member and has a releasing segment and a positioning segment. The bracket is adapted to be expanded to a first expanding state relative to the base by the elastic force of the elastic member, so as to drive the positioning portion to move along the releasing segment. The bracket is adapted to receive an external force to be continually expanded to a second expanding state relative to the base, so as to drive the positioning portion to move to the positioning segment.

A slot antenna structure for an electronic tag includes a dielectric layer, a conductor layer, a slot area and a capacitance adjustment unit. The electronic tag includes an identification chip. The conductor layer is disposed on the dielectric layer. The slot area is disposed in the conductor layer and includes an open slot, an open end and at least one closed slot. The open end is located at an edge of the conductor layer and extends inwardly to form the open slot for disposing the identification chip. The open slot has two sidewalls, and the two sidewalls have at least one turning point at a bottom portion of the open slot to form the closed slot. The capacitance adjustment unit is disposed on a surface of the dielectric layer different from the conductor layer to correspond to the slot area, thereby generating a capacitance effect.

A portable electronic device includes a first body and a second body. The first body includes a casing, a supporter, a first magnetic component and a torsion component. The casing includes an accommodating trench and a first trench communicated with the accommodating trench. A first lateral of the supporter is pivoted to the casing via the torsion component, and a second lateral of the supporter includes a notch. The magnetic component is slidably disposed in the first trench. The second body is pivoted to the first body and includes a second magnetic component. When the supporter is located in the accommodating trench and the first magnetic component extends into the notch, the supporter is positioned inside the accommodating trench by the first magnetic component, and the torsion component stores elastic potential energy. When the second body is rotated close to the first body, the first magnetic component exits the notch due to a magnetic repulsive force of the second magnetic component, and the torsion component releases the elastic potential energy so that the second lateral of the supporter is rotated out to support the second body.

A hard drive disk indicator processing apparatus includes first and second processors. The first processor includes first, second and third communication interfaces. The first communication interface receives at least one serial general purpose input/output signal from a motherboard. The second communication interface receives a plurality piece of hard drive disk status information for responding to a plurality of hard drive disk statuses of hard drive disks. The third communication interface outputs serial information. The second processor includes fourth and fifth communication interfaces. The fourth communication interface is coupled to the third communication interface and receives the serial information. The fifth communication interface is coupled to a plurality of hard drive disk indicators. The first processor generates the serial information according to the at least one serial general purpose input/output signal. The second processor controls an on/off status of each of the hard drive disk indicators according to the serial information.


A method and a portable electronic apparatus for adaptively adjusting a playback effect of speakers are provided. The portable electronic apparatus includes a speaker enclosure volume adjusting device and a processor coupled to the speakers and the speaker enclosure volume adjusting device. In the method, the processor detects a usage demand for the portable electronic apparatus and accordingly determines an audio mode. Based on the determined audio mode, the processor selects and activates multiple speakers, and adjusts an enclosure volume of at least one of the activated speakers, so as to change an audio frequency range of the at least one speaker and an overall audio frequency range covered by the activated speakers. Finally, the processor plays an audio through the activated speakers.
