Don’t you just hate it when a register in a Computer chip pre-fetches data and feeds it into the pipe Queue? Effen Scientists are always predicting stuff..
Without Einstein and converting time and speed data that dumb GPS devices wouldn’t work in my car…
If Scientists would just stop predicting stuff we would be better off..

Well, the Octopus predicted Spain would beat Germany, and it happened…and bookies use computer modelling as well:

Cape Town - Bookmakers are banking on the Netherlands facing Spain in the 2010 Soccer World Cup final at Soccer City in Soweto on July 11.

Leading SA bookies, GreatOdds, have the Netherlands on offer at 3/5 to beat Uruguay in the first semi-final at the Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday night and progress to the final for the first time since 1978.

Uruguay can be backed at 19/4 while the draw after 90 minutes is on offer at 5/2.

A far tighter affair is expected in Wednesday’s second semi-final between Germany and Spain at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

The Germans, the leading scorers at this year’s tournament with 13, enter the match as slight underdogs at 7/4.

Spain, the reigning European champions, are looking to reach their first ever World Cup final. They can be backed at 29/20 to do so, while the draw is perhaps the most attractive prospect at 11/5.
