"a self-organizing list of previously accessed data items" is the focus of a
recent Apple patent that all IAs should at least peruse:
Embodiments of the invention organize previously accessed data items
non-chronologically. The organizational method may be selected from one or
more predetermined organizational methods, specified by a parameter, or
dynamically determined from information about the data items. Some examples
of information about the data items that can be used to organize the data
items include, but are not limited to, information about what content was
viewed, information about where the content was viewed, information about
when the content was viewed, information about why the content was viewed,
and information about who the content was viewed by or owned by. Any
electronic device used to access more than one data item can implement the
systems and methods for organizing and presenting data.
Unlike previous browsers that have a history list organized in chronological
order, Henryıs browser has the web pages that he has viewed organized by
subject mater. Also, unlike previous browsers that have a history list made
up of the names or uniform resource locators (URLs) for web pages, Henryıs
browser has a history of the web pages he has viewed presented graphically.
Just think of the possibilities!
If it didn't, you'd be out of a job.
