An apparatus to debug wakelocks includes a processor component; a capture component to intercept calls associated with application level wakelocks, the intercepted calls received by an application power manager of an operating system from application routines; and a relaying component to cooperate with the application power manager to provide indications of the intercepted calls to a system log generator of the operating system coupled to the application power manager, the system log generator to generate system log data comprising indications of events associated with execution of the operating system by the processor component and the indications of the intercepted calls.

Scrambling passcode entry interface


A method of secured passcode entry is disclosed. The method, in one embodiment, includes: receiving a request to authenticate a user; in response to receiving the request, generating a passcode entry interface that includes a plurality of buttons for the user to compose a passcode entry, each button representing a character of a set of characters, the set of characters having a natural sequence, wherein said generating includes displaying the buttons on a touchscreen of the electronic device in an arrangement that does not reflect the natural sequence of the set of characters; detecting a touch event, represented as a coordinate on the touchscreen, interacting with the touchscreen while the passcode entry interface is displayed, wherein the touch event is indicative of at least a portion of a passcode entry by the user; and verifying an authenticity of the passcode entry based at least partly on the touch event..

Vehicle multi-mode vertical-split-screen display


A vehicle information system includes a “portrait” in-dash touchscreen display for simultaneously displaying both vehicle-specific and application-specific information as vertically-stacked “landscape” renderings, or for displaying a selected one of either the vehicle-specific or application information as a single “portrait” rendering. A further region of the touchscreen's active surface, preferably along its upper margin, is reserved as a fixed command bar to facilitate manual “touch” selection of the information to be displayed on the remainder of the touchscreen's active surface, while the system further dynamically responds to vehicle and operational parameters to select the information for display as appropriate, for example, based on vehicle operation conditions..
