Apple has filed a patent (20130041903) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for the categorization of digital media based on media characteristics. It involves the iTunes infrastructure across multiple operating systems.

Per the patent, digital media categorization can include receiving information including a plurality of media objects and a metadata tag descriptive of at least a first media object; comparing the first media object with a second media object; and selectively associating the first media object’s metadata tag with the second media object based on a result of the comparison. Each media object can include a digital image.

Here’s Apple’s background on the invention: “Digital media such as digital images or video can be generated, for example, by a digital camera, camcorder, television camera, or mobile phone. These digital images or videos can be labeled with descriptive information for future viewing, browsing, or searching. Such descriptive information can include, for example, a name of a person, a name of place, or event information. For example, a user can label a digital image depicting a person with the name of that person. Later, a user can search for images labeled with that person’s name.”

Gregory Charles Lindley and Timothy B. Martin are the inventors.

It is the embodiment of wealth and conflict. What we forget in the midst of routine details is the cumulative effect of things. When somebody drops a stone in a river, this may cause the river course to change once and for all. Washington and Usamah Bin-Ladin are part of this mosaic.

Age and Ye Grate American Novelle

I don't think American authors are failing to thrive and produce as such. But I do think social and economic factors make it very hard to be a young, productive novelist.
Several factors impinge on the writer from the outside, creating new barriers to market entry for new authors.

***** Intensified competition for fewer publishing niches has driven UP the quality of what actually gets published. Many of those old literary lions would never have made it in today's marketplace. Tougher competition raises the bar for the level of excellence expected of a first or second novel.

They called it 'the matrix,' a computer program that brought a scientific dimension to Enron's effort to seduce politicians and sway bureaucrats.
With each proposed change in federal regulations, lobbyists punched details into a computer, allowing Enron economists in Houston to calculate just how much a rule change would cost. If the final figure was too high, executives used it as the cu...k attitude,' in reference to Comedy Central's animated series populated with profane and irreverent third-graders. The idea, the executive said, was to push hard and not worry about making friends.
'The ingrained philosophy was, me first, money counts and the government should eliminate my taxes,' said another former manager. 'That's all they cared about -- what impacted them personally.'
