  • Patent number: 9038000
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, a method of browsing and displaying items from a collection is provided. Information about each of plurality of items in a collection is stored. A plurality of user-entered tags is obtained. Each tag comprises a term associated with one or more of the items in the collection. The tags are stored in machine-readable storage media. An image that is representative of an item is displayed on a display screen along with images that are representative of each of a plurality of associated tags. In response to a user selecting a particular one of the displayed tags, an image representing the selected tag is displayed along with a plurality of images that are representative of items associated with the selected tag. In response to the user selecting a particular one of the displayed items, an image that is representative of the selected item can be displayed along with a plurality of images that are representative of tags associated with the selected item.

  • Patent number: 9009661
    Abstract: Systems and methods which provide platform sensitive application characteristics with respect to multi-platform applications are shown. As application aspects are developed in the application, embodiments include platform sensitivity characteristics for the application aspects in the application to provide for adaptation of application characteristics for multiple platforms. Embodiments provide an application runtime environment which, although independently defining its own user interface rendering attributes, operates to adjust application characteristics in accordance with a host platform. As application aspects of a multi-platform application are to be executed, if there are relevant cross platform differences, application aspect characteristics are adjusted so as to be appropriate to the host platform. The appropriately adjusted aspects are executed to thereby provide platform sensitive application characteristics with respect to the multi-platform application.

  • Patent number: 8566747
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, a method of browsing and displaying items from a collection is provided. Information about each of plurality of items is stored in machine-readable storage media. A group of the items is selected for display. One of a plurality of image sizes is assigned to each of the items of the group. Images that are representative of each of the items of the group are displayed on a display screen using the assigned image sizes. A particular position on the display screen that is occupied by a particular one of the items of the group can be selected randomly. The image size assigned to each item can be representative of the corresponding item's rank according to at least one sorting criterion.

  • Publication number: 20120035978
    Abstract: A system for and a method of determining relative value of a product. In accordance with an embodiment, a value is obtained that is representative of purchasing activity directed toward a product. This value is stored in a computer-readable storage medium. A value is obtained that is representative of non-purchasing activity that is directed toward the product. This value is also stored in computer-readable memory. The value representative of purchasing activity and the value representative of non-purchasing activity are combined and the result is displayed on a display screen. A result of the combining can be scaled and rounded so that the result is a whole number between 0 and 99. This number is referred to herein as a “Community Value” that reflects the relative value placed on the product by members of a community.
