The abstract states:

A system and method are disclosed for generating an animatable object. A skeleton of the desired character is constructed by the user utilizing various predetermined components. These predetermined components include a various selection of rods and joints. The rods are static components which remain rigid during motion, while the various joints are moveable components. A static digitized image, for example, an image of the user, is utilized and a constructed skeleton is superimposed onto it. The desired object, such as the image of the user, can then be extracted from the background of the digital image and the resulting personal character can then be animated, for instance by selecting and dragging one of the hands with a mouse.

Top Digital Communication Patent – System and method for synchronizing operations among a plurality of independently clocked digital data processing devices – US8234395

U.S. Patent 8234395 was awarded to Sonos, Inc. on 2012-07-31 and describes a “System and method for synchronizing operations among a plurality of independently clocked digital data processing devices.” This patent has been cited 309 times by other U.S. patents which places it in the top 500 cited patents since 2010 according to our law firm research, and makes it of the most innovative digital communication patents in the field of electrical engineering. The abstract states:

A system maintains synchrony of operations among devices that have independent clocking arrangements. The system includes a task distribution device that distributes tasks to a synchrony group of devices that perform the tasks distributed by the task distribution device in synchrony. The task distribution device distributes each task to the members of the synchrony group over a network. Each task is associated with a time stamp that indicates a time, relative to a clock maintained by the task distribution device, at which the members of the synchrony group are to execute the task. Each member of the synchrony group periodically obtains an indication of the current time indicated by its clock, determines a time differential between the task distribution device’s clock and its respective clock and determines a time at which, according to its respective clock, the time stamp indicates that it is to execute the task. Link: U.S. Patent 8234395

This patent was originally filed on 2004-04-01 which gives it a processing time of 3043 days, compared to an average processing time of 2154 in the field. Sonos, Inc. has 381 total patents. The first named inventor is Nicholas Millington of Santa Barbara, CA. The primary examiner was Jeffrey Nickerson.

Armco  patent by Jeff Bezos from 2008 for error processing methods for providing responsive content to a user when a page load error occurs - US7325045
A client component runs on a user computer in conjunction with a web browser and detects errors, such as but not limited to “404: page not found” errors, in which a requested web page or other object cannot be displayed. In response to detecting the error, the client component notifies an error processing server, which uses the URL of the failed request to identify an alternate object to display. The alternate object may, for example, be (a) an object retrieved from replacement URL, or from a URL that is otherwise related to the requested object, (b) a cached version of the requested object, (c) an object retrieved from a closely matching URL found in the user’s clickstream history, or (d) a dynamically generated page that includes links to one or more of the foregoing types of alternate objects. Also disclosed are methods for identifying alternate objects for a given URL. Link: U.S. Patent 7325045
