Inventors’ Corner: U.S. Patent # 7,610,187 – Lingual translation of syndicated content feeds

This new patented invention from IBM brings real-time, language translation delivered right to your computer one step closer to reality. The patent describes a technique that enables syndicated content feeds to provide viewers the choice of reading blogs or news feeds in different languages. The system uses a translation server, such as Websphere Translation Server, which is configured to dynamically translate syndicated content feeds, such as RSS or Atom feeds, into multiple languages. The translated feeds are received by an aggregator and are available for viewing by recipients in their specified language(s).

The patent was issued to IBM Researcher Jo Grant of Winchester, MA.

    Would you be interested in an idea that would create Electricity through renewable energy that would supply all the needs of the United States, and most other nations, be cost effective, no contamination of the atmosphere (physical or visual), no harm to fish or fowl, environmentally friendly, (clean air credits), does not cross any private land, easy access to existing electrical supply lines. strong tax advantage, creates immediate up front income for state and federal government and annual income thereafter,
    Very little expense required by start up company.
    Would create thousands of green jobs and a dramatic income (billions) for the company that has the foresight and good fortune to create this great opportunity.

    Sound like an impossible dream. This one can come true when you wake up and find out you are not dreaming.

    By combining the present existing products that are in use by several industries today and perfecting and changing them slightly, adding two new ideas, Electricity will be produced in abundance.

    President Obama has said that he will increase employment in the field of green energy by three times and he would support and encourage any way to decrease our dependents on present methods to produce electricity.

    Many billions of dollars will be spent to create renewable energy so we can decrease the warming trend of the world.
    Many billions of dollars will be paid to any company that can reduce the contamination of our atmosphere (cap and trade).
    Dramatic reductions in atmosphere contamination are being required by congress.
    The state of California will require that companies that sell energy must go to 30% renewable energy by 2020.
    A seemingly impossible goal at a great cost to businesses and individuals at a time when we don’t need new expenses.

    After I retired, the thought of global warming, loss of atmosphere quality disturbed me. I knew there must be an answer. Five years of extensive research, discussions with many specialist in the field, review of all original inventions, and combinations of approaches have helped me to find the answer. Almost like a Star Wars approach very simple and yet very complex. I have spent thousands of dollars on research and patents and am now ready to talk.

    Please return this e-mail if you are interested in my ideas, Everything I have said can be proven in writing. I look forward to hearing from you.


  2. Any word on whether Mr. Grant's name change had any influence on the USPTO to allow the case to issue?
