Google becomes more smart : gives Movie dates

July 12, 2012 Leave a comment

You can already do plenty of calculations and conversions right in Google’s search box, and it looks like the company’s now made it even smarter still. Searching for the title of an upcoming movie or video game plus “release date” will now instantly give you Google’s best guess for when the title will actually be released ( which i guess is apparently based on how often it’s been mentioned on certain websites).

Searches for movie and video game release dates are now showing what Google thinks is the best answer based on info that it finds on various websites. As you can see in the image above, just use the name of the movie or game and add “release date” to the query to get search results like this.

A ‘No to all’ button in Windows

It all began the day when i was trying to copy a very huge folder with over 1000’s of files and trying to copy it into an already existing folder with a different structure or so i thought. It all began nice and easy but then it hit a reef. It encountered a folder with the same name, containing files with same name but the contents of those files were entirely different and showed me a dialog asking me whether i want to overwrite the files or let it be. It provided me with the options of ‘Yes’, ‘Yes to All’, ‘No’ or ‘Cancel’
