The secure and non-secure operating systems are isolated from each other. The computer processor component is configured to execute code to perform the following operations: receiving an authentication request from an application that is run by the non-secure operating system, wherein the authentication request contains credentials of the application; communicating with a secure applet that is run by the secure operating system, and wherein the communicating includes transferring the credentials of the application to the secure applet; and authenticating and vetting the application based on the credentials of the application.


A method and a system are provided. The system comprises a processor-implemented video frame selector module configured to determine a video frame to process that is received from a mobile device, the processor-implemented video frame selector module comprising a video frame analyzer module configured to determine a difference between a first video frame and a second video frame, and a video frame tag module configured to tag the first or second video frame as the determined video frame for item identification when the difference exceeds a predetermined amount. The system further comprises a processor-implemented item identification module configured to identify an item in the determined video frame and to tag the determined video frame with an identification of the item. The system also comprises a processor-implemented market module configured to generate offers of the identified item from at least one merchant to the mobile device.


A method to synchronize data between a spreadsheet application and a marketplace application is disclosed. The method includes receiving a request to synchronize data items between the spreadsheet application and the marketplace application, the data items relating to a type of listing of items associated with the marketplace application. Additionally, the method includes executing a process to synchronize the data items between the spreadsheet application and the marketplace application, the process to include at least one of downloading one of the data items from the spreadsheet application and uploading one of the plurality of data items to the marketplace application, the executing of the process to occur independently of the executing of the spreadsheet application. Furthermore, the method includes displaying a status of the executing of the process in a native user interface element of the spreadsheet application.

In various example embodiments, a system and method for updating stored item data using a remote computing system are presented. In example embodiments, a first user selection of a representation of an item accessible from a first remote computing system is received at a client device while the client device is in electronic communication with the first remote computing system via a network. Based on the first user selection, first item data describing the selected item is retrieved from the first remote computing system via the network, and the first item data is stored in a data storage system residing on the client device. After the storing of the first item data, second item data for the selected item is retrieved from a second remote computing system via the network, and the stored first item data is updated based on at least a portion of the retrieved second item data.


Systems and methods to provide search results along a corridor are discussed. In an example, a method for providing search results along a corridor can include displaying an interface enabling a user to define a route of travel, accessing a search corridor, filtering a plurality of search results, and displaying the search results. The search corridor encompassing at least a portion of the route of travel, and based at least in part on the route of travel, a mode of transportation, and a route deviation threshold. The plurality of search results including an associated geographic location, and filtered based at least in part on the search corridor. Displaying the search results can include a representation of the search corridor, the route of travel, and the filtered set of search results.


A system comprising a computer-readable storage medium storing at least one program and a computer-implemented method for automatically saving and presenting a state of a communication session are presented. The communication session may be established between a client device of a user and an application server of a content publisher. In some embodiments, the method may include determining that the communication session includes a typical process flow of the user. Session data representative of a state of the communication session may then be selected and stored in response to performance of a particular operation that is at least similar to an operation included in the sequence of operations of the typical process flow of the user. The method may further include generating and presenting an interface that includes an element that allows a user to return to the saved state of the communication session.


Systems and methods to mine product recommendations from query reformulation are provided. In example embodiments, a query that corresponds to a particular product is received. Transition data for the particular product is accessed. The transition data includes values reflecting a number of search transitions between the particular product and other products in session sets of previous queries. One or more recommendations based on the transition data is determined. The one or more recommendation are provided to a device of the user.
