Google suggest they can predict box office performance with 94% accuracy Google suggest they can predict box office performance with 94% accuracy

Google do countless things, but did you know that one of them is predicting just how much money a new blockbuster movie will make at the box office up to four weeks from its release? A new study from the Mountain View-based giant called "Quantifying Movie Magic with Google Search" has found that by using data from Google's search engine, they can predict a film's opening weekend box office results with up to 94% accuracy.
Google puts them down to search volume for a movie's trailer a month before release, and as the release of the movie gets closer, the predictions become slightly less accurate. Just a week before a movie is released, Google uses search volume for a film's title rather than the trailer, combining this with theater availability to make predictions that are still around 92%

RumorTT: Sony Xperia Z to be the next 'Google Edition' smartphone RumorTT: Sony Xperia Z to be the next 'Google Edition' smartphone

reviewed the Sony Xperia Z a little while back and loved it
, I donned it our Editor's Choice Award and was left with the feeling that it could be the phone that sees Sony walk out from behind Samsung's shadow. Sure, they're not selling 10 million smartphones a month, but not everyone has the power to do that.
One thing I've wanted for a while is just a pure Android experience, which is why my day-to-day smartphone is still the Nexus 4. But, the "Google Edition" smartphones are definitely getting more and more popular with Samsung announcing the Galaxy S4 Google Edition and then we saw HTC unveil the One Google Edition. Rumor has it that Sony and Google are preparing a stock Android version of the Xperia Z, which is something I would truly, truly love to see.

76-year-old female Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, wants one-way ticket to Mars 76-year-old female Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, wants one-way ticket to Mars

The first woman to go into space has offered to set out on one-way trip to Mars at the age of 76. Valentina Tereshkova became a feminist icon after her solo space flight in 1963 at age 26. Ms Tereshkova, 76, said Mars was her favourite planet and she harbours dreams of going there. While she thought the first manned flight to Mars would be a suicide trip, she volunteered to take part. "I am ready," she said.
"We know the human limits. And for us this remains a dream. Most likely the first flight will be one way. But I am ready."
The 76-year-old former cosmonaut had been part of the group who studied the possibility of going to the Red Planet. She was speaking ahead of the 50th anniversary of her June 16, 1963 blastoff which propelled her into the record books, and made her one of the Sovie

The deal isn't final yet, but according to reports, Google agreed to keep Waze workers at their Israel-based development center, and will allow the company to continue their development in Israel
"for at least three years"
The deal will reportedly see Waze CEO Noam Bardin continue his top dog position, while Waze will also keep their brand and won't be integrated into Google. There was a bidding war between social network giants Facebook and Google, with Google reportedly getting the +1.

Z87 Extreme 6: How to configure adaptive voltage options? Z87 Extreme 6: How to configure adaptive voltage options?

Hiya,
So far I've succesfully overclocked my Z87 Extreme 6 with i7-4770K to 4.6GHz on 1.275V ... (tried 4.7GHz as well, but I did not yet want to push the voltage over 1.3V to get it stable - Handbrake crashed after a few minutes). At 4.6GHz and with AIDA64 stability testing, the temperatures reach the mid to high 80's on air (as expected for Haswell) which works for me.
However, this overclock is using the "Override voltage" setting (which also uses this same voltage when idle, keeping the idle temps in the high 30's), and what I really want to use is Haswell's adaptive voltage to give me 1.275V at high load. I don't understand how to configure it though, the manual (quoted below) and the help messages in UEFI (identical to the manual) do not make sense to me. They both say "add voltage

Leaked E3 trailer to Watch Dogs will have you throwing money at your screen Leaked E3 trailer to Watch Dogs will have you throwing money at your screen

We're just hours away from E3 starting but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy some leaked trailer goodness now, does it? One of which is the game at the top of my most wanted list, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs.
The trailer isn't in-game footage, but it does set the pace for the game and what it is all about. It has a great feel to it, and I'm pretty sure that everything that is done in the trailer is capable of being done in the game. It truly is a no holds barred trailer, and something you need to watch right now.

SuperMicro displays SuperStorage 6057R-E1R72L with 72 HDD bays SuperMicro displays SuperStorage 6057R-E1R72L with 72 HDD bays

Computex Taipei 2013
- The SuperMicro line of SuperStorage Servers features one server with a whopping 72 HDD bays for maximum storage density. How do you cram 72 HDD's into one chassis?
Dual-drive HDD bays help to double the number of storage devices per slot. There is also an imbeeded LSI 2308 HBA to help handle the vast number of storage devices.
[img]03/img]
The 6047R-E1R72L supports the C602 chipset and Xeon E5-2600 family of processors. There is up to 512GB of RAM support, and 4 PCI-e x8 low profile slots for attaching the HBA's and/or RAID controllers needed for such a dense storage deployment.
Quawd Gigabit LAN ports provide network connectivity, and a dual 200W redundant power supply system is also available.
In order to provide the maximum density the rear of the chasis also fea

Computex Taipei 2013
- SuperMicro had a beast of a SuperStorage Server on display at Computex 2013, with support for up to 24 x 2.5" drives, which could either be the latest and greatest 10 and 15K HDDs, or SSDs, including the
new breed of 12Gb/s SSDs on the market
From the top, we can see the three 12Gb/s controllers for the HDD bays. We typically expect rebranded HBA's and RAID controllers for large OEM suppliers, but the origin of these controllers is unclear.
SuperMicro was not forthcoming with many details, including the ROC utilized in these builds. These controllers look to be a custom design with large capacitors to the end of the board.
The HD-MiniSAS ports and connections allow for greater density in smaller form factors for ease of deployment. These cards were under load, with

- At Computex 2013, SuperMicro displayed their newest line of Haswell servers, with the SuperServer 5038ML-H12TRF on display.
The power efficiency of the new Haswell architecture provides the possibility for enhanced density in server solutions. Here we can observe a 1U rack with a single processor server.
Here we see the 12-node version of the SuperMicro Supersaver 5038ML-H12TRF on display. These hotpluggable racks pull out for easy service and each hold 2 drives for storage.
Each tray holds one CPU and up to 32GB of Ram. These dense compute servers each feature dual port Intel Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports.
Support for the Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 families allows for power consumption of 13 to 80 Watts per node, and the C224 chipset.

Soon but not soon enough - OCZ Vector PCIe, it's coming Soon but not soon enough - OCZ Vector PCIe, it's coming

Computex Taipei 2013
- We know it's coming and coming sometime soon but that isn't good enough when OCZ Technology teases it at CES and Computex in 2013.
With two Indilinx Barefoot 3 controllers and up to 1TB of NAND flash, we know you want it too. If the PCIe version of Vector includes SCSI unmap, a form of TRIM, then we'll do back flips followed by cartwheels. Wouldn't that be a sight to see?
As far as I know, this is the first back side picture of the card. All together there are 32 NAND flash chips, four DRAM buffers and two Barefoot 3 controllers. Bridging the two controllers to the PCIe 4 lane is an OCZ VCA II. This is a full height card for desktop use. When they finally come out I want six for RAID 5 in a prosumer SAN.

Two FDDs supported on any current-gen boards? Two FDDs supported on any current-gen boards?

To cut a long story short, I've got a combined 3.5" + 5.25" FDD unit that behaves as two drives on one cable. I'd like to keep this for my next upgrade.
Asrock appears to be the only manufacturer still offering boards with a FDD connector - the Z77 Extreme6, the 980DE-U3S3, the 990FX-Extreme4, etc. Unfortunately, from what I can see in the manual, the BIOS only allows support for a single FDD (A:) and there's no way to get it to support a second one. Is there some way around this, or do I (finally) have to give up on the FDDs?

ASROCK BIOS 2.20 seems to be trouble for motherboard H67M-ITX/HT ASROCK BIOS 2.20 seems to be trouble for motherboard H67M-ITX/HT

I have an H67M-ITX/HT board running Windows 7 up-to-date. I just upgraded the BIOS to 2.20 and have inadvertently created a nightmare.
BIOS download URL:
www.asrock.com/mb/overview.us.asp?cat=Do wnload&os=BIOS&Model=H67M-ITX/HT
The upgrade followed the instructions and succeeded. Unfortunately, I can only boot into Windows by luck. Most reboots or power ups wind up in the "ASROCK UEFI SETUP UTILITY" screen (normally invoked by F2/Delete) which appears to be getting random phantom mouse and/or keyboard input. I suspect that my BIOS settings have been trashed by this BIOS.
Since I can still get into Windows sometimes (miraculously interrupting the errant BIOS with my own F11 presses and mousing), I'd appreciate it if anyone had a BIOS fallback image and procedure. I am hoping that my mothe

Some manufacturers such as Asus with a built in wifi chipset in their z87 solutions advertise that their mobos can also be set up to provide wifi hotspots, provided that their pcs are already wired.
I didn't see any mention similar to that on the Asrock's website, and was wondering if the Extreme6ac mobo could also do that.
Thanks.
