Google PageRank updates schedule for 2013

 Google’s PageRank (named after Larry Page), or the heart of their software as Google describes it, is a system of counting link votes and determining which pages are most important based on them. These scores are then used along with many other things to determine if a page will rank well in a search.

The PageRank updates scheduled for this year:
  • 1st Update: January 28 to February 6
  • 2nd Update: June 27 to July 7
  • 3rd Update: September 29 to 4 October
  • 4th Update: 24 December to 29 December
However, Google also relies on other strategies such as Google Panda (released in February 2011) which is a change that aims to lower the rank of "low-quality sites" or "thin sites", and return higher-quality sites near the top of the search results. CNET reported a surge in the rankings of news websites and social networking sites, and a drop in rankings for sites containing large amounts of advertising.

What did Burger King get for its fiftieth birthday!

Burger King has revolutionized the world of hamburger with a handsfree kit called Hands Free Whopper.

Burger King should satisfy all those who do not have time to eat. With the kit, you can now enjoy your burger while continuing your activities on the Internet, in the office, on the subway ... proposed by the fast food concept is fairly simple, you put the hands-free around your neck. The burger fits in the slot provided for this purpose and the height is normally perfect. Your sandwich will be right in front of your mouth, so it is ready to be tasted. You can then perform a second activity while eating.

Burger King has decided to invent this product for its 50 years. The conflicting views on the Internet, some find this a stupid accessory, others are very interested and eager to try it. Users also noted that the company is trying by all means to create a buzz for the crowd in its facilities. For the famous hands-free kit, it will go to the island of Puerto Rico, Burger King will only sell this place the Hands Free Whopper.

This is not the first time such a handsfree born. The rival of Burger King had proposed a fried-door car. It was distributed in Japan and is easily fixed on the dashboard. You could drive while eating, you can now do the same with a burger. It will be around your neck, it must pay attention to bad jokes. The sandwich could quickly be IN your face.

And finally, there is no better way to display my objection than this scene from "Modern Times" where the Tramp(Charlie Chaplin) tries out an automated lunch feeder, for which the owner of the factory reluctantly agrees to a demonstration, in hopes of cutting the costs of needless "break time".

Codename Haswell: Official launch and test of the Core i7-4770K

Intel chose today, a Saturday to launch its new generation of processors, known as Haswell. And since Haswell is the fourth generation of processors using the name code "i",  it will be marketed with references: Core ix-4000.  
Not the entire range will be launched today, we can only approach the performance of desktop processors. Our case concerns therefore the Core i7-4770K, the top of the range Haswell. Is the new architecture really faster? Is the 22nm engraving better controlled? smaller consumption? better overclocking? And what about the graphics performance, expected to be up to 3 times higher compared to Ivy Bridge?

To get your answers check this post on the TechSpot reviewing the
Core i7-4770K.
