This disclosure proposed a new time-sensible information consumption model that helps you consume the most information in the shortest time, for example, to read the most content while you are waiting for a taxi. The information includes video, text, music, etc. The system can first detect your fragment time period by connecting with your apps to calculate how much time is left. Then it extracts and prioritizes each part of the content that you are reading or playing. Last, given both of your average and actual reading speeds, the system timely highlights the most important parts of your content for you to consume. This disclosure can largely improve the content consuming efficiency, and also enhance user experience and productivity.
