Title: MEDIA DEVICE
Abstract:
A portion of media content being outputted to a user by a media device is identified as follows. A user input is received from the user at the media device during the outputting of the media content. The user input denotes a current interest in the media content expressed by the user. An identifier of a portion of the media content corresponding to a timing of the user input is identified by the media device. The identifier is for locating associated content information held in a content identification database. In response to the user input, the media device uses the identifier to render accessible, to a secondary device available to the user, the associated content information.
