“[A]dding a ‘computer aided’ limitation to a claim covering an abstract concept, without more, is insufficient to render [a] claim patent eligible” where the claims “are silent as to how a computer aids the method, the extent to which a computer aids the method, or the significance of a computer to the performance of the method.” DealerTrack, Inc. v. Huber, 674 F.3d 1315, 1333 (Fed. Cir. 2012); see MPEP § 2106(II)(B)(1)(a). Integral use of a machine or apparatus to achieve performance of the method weighs toward eligibility, as compared to where the machine or apparatus is merely an object on which the method operates, which weighs against eligibility. See CyberSource Corp. v. Retail Decisions, Inc., 654 F.3d 1366, 1375 (Fed. Cir. 2011); MPEP § 2106(II)(B)(1)(b) .
