  • Publication number: 20040243671
    Abstract: A method and system for image sharing based upon faces in an image is disclosed. The method for image sharing based upon faces in an image comprises defining a sharing rule defining with which one or more recipients images are shared based on face identifying information, and applying face identifying information associated with the image to the sharing rule to determine the one or more recipients with which the image should be shared. The system for image sharing based on faces in an image comprises a sharing rule defining with which one or more recipients images are shared based on face identifying information, and a sharing engine to apply face identifying information associated with an image to the sharing rule to determine the one or more recipients with which the image should be shared.

  • Publication number: 20030187673
    Abstract: A distributed click-to-print system is disclosed. Components of the system include a personal photo management system, which typically resides on an amateur photographer's computer, a messaging system that supports simple message automation, a client message browsing system, and a photo merchandising system, which is accessible from a data communication network. The system automates the previously manual step of uploading photos, eliminates the cost and time of uploading photos that are not used in producing photo-related merchandise, eliminates the storing of unrequested photos on a merchandiser's website, and enables a photographer's acquaintance to order prints long after such photos may been purged from the merchandiser's service. That is, the system relies on the photographer's personal photo collection for long-term storage and further changes print ordering from a push model to a pull model, in which the photo merchandise service downloads only photos that have been requested.

  • Patent number: 6072521
    Abstract: A hand held device for use to separately render associated data is disclosed. The hand held device includes a display element, a processor, and a communication interface. The communication interface operates to receive rendering commands of the associated data from a host device, which received the associated data in conjunction with primary data, and subsequently separated the associated data from the primary data. The processor causes the associated data to be rendered on the display element. The hand held device further includes an enclosure for housing the display element etc., which has physical dimensions that are suitable for hand held usage while viewing the primary data, which are separately rendered.

  • Patent number: 5818510
    Abstract: A method and apparatus generates and transfers a stream of broadcast information which includes multiple video and audio information segments to a receiving device. Once received, the segments are stored in a cache and indexing information associated with the segments is made available to end users of the apparatus. The end users are then able to select which segment(s) they would like to receive, and the selected segment(s) is transmitted to the requesting user(s). In one embodiment, when a new segment is received, a determination is made as to whether it is a more recent version of another segment already stored by the apparatus. If it is a more recent version, then the older version is overwritten by the newer version.

  • Patent number: 5818441
    Abstract: A system supplying information associated with a broadcast television program to a consumer such that said consumer perceives the associated data as the result of two way interactivity with external sources of data such as online services or the Internet. The system includes equipment for inserting the associated data into the vertical blanking interval of the television signal on the supplier side of the system. On the receiving side, the system includes a personal computer capable of receiving the television program and storing the associated data locally. The consumer may then interact with the stored associated data in an apparently two way interactive manner. Additional interactivity may be achieved by adding an actual two way communication channel to the personal computer so that online services or the Internet may be accessed.
