Baidu launches entertainment channel

Baidu Yule. The channel is a set of websites which
aggregates news, images, etc from Baidu's search
database, for specific stars, movies, and so on.
The interesting thing is many of the webpages are
autogenerated with an algorithm. Looking at a
page, it seems the algorithm, given a star's name,
trawls Baidu's database to locate his movies,
popular photos, and so, and collects them together
to create a page, the way a fan site would.
