  • [01] ore than 30.000 Cars Confiscated


    The number of confiscated cars by banks is beyond the wildest imagination. In 2008, about 100.000 applications of cars' confiscation were issues by Courts around the country that eventually proceeded to the confiscation of about 70.000 cars. The situation is expected to get worse in 2009 as in the first two months more than 20.000 cars have been confiscated.

    The dramatic reduction recorded in used cars has dropped the prices even more as recorded in confiscated cars' auctions. More specifically, in April's 29 confiscated cars' auction, Mercedes L500 2006 was sold for 30.000 euros, BMW M3 001 for 30.000 and VW Touareg 2005 for 20.000.

    [02] New Web Tool

    A web tool that "could be as important as Google", according to some experts, has been shown off to the public. Wolfram Alpha is the brainchild of British-born physicist Stephen Wolfram. The free program aims to answer questions directly, rather than display web pages in response to a query like a search engine.

    "Our goal is to make expert knowledge accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime," said Dr Wolfram at the demonstration at Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

    People can use the system to look up simple facts - such as the height of Mount Everest - or crunch several data sets together to produce new results. Other functions solve complex mathematical equations, plot scientific figures or chart natural events.
