The new added search features are actually is not base on any weather forecast but they are using the latitude, longitude and the current time for a particular location. Base on their statement, the accuracy of the calculation is just about single minutes of different.

Searches for Michael Jackson surged a little before 3 p.m. PDT Thursday.



Google has confirmed that the surge of Micheal Jackson-related searched on Google News Thursday was first interpreted as an ttack on its service.


Google News was inaccessible for some people Thursday afternoon right as rumors of Jackson’s death began to circulate, replaced by an error message reading “We’re sorry, but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can’t process your request right now.”


Of course, those queries were quite legitimate, as millions around the world searched for accurate information regarding Jackson following reports that he had suffered cardiac arrest. The spike in queries began at about 2:45 p.m. PDT Thursday, and Google thought the traffic was an attack for about 25 minutes before realizing what was going on.


Google also noted that it saw a huge spike in mobile searches. Yahoo’s data backed up Google’s; it set a record for unique visitors in a single day with 16.4 million visitors, and its lead story on Jackson’s death was the most highly-visited story in its history.

Google FAIL in math

By on May 27, 2009

google_failDo you believe that the Search engine gaint are FAIL in math?


Google search engine calculator will display the wrong answer if you try to calculate the very large number. For example 2,999,999,999,999,999 minus 2,999,999,999,999,998 should be get the answer of 1, but google give the answer of “0”. Suprise?


You will only get the correct answer  2,999,999,999,999,999 minus 2,999,999,999,999,990 which the answer is 9.


The other example is 400000000000002-400000000000001, you will get the answer of 0 instead of 1, but 400000000000002-400000000000000 you will get the correct answer of 2 from Google calculator.


Basically this post is just for fun, I’m not sure what is the story behind the calculation error, maybe is a bugs, or maybe Google have their own explaination on it.
