Wolfram|Alpha

www.wolframalpha.com

Wolfram|Alpha has been getting a lot of buzz lately, but if you haven’t come across it yet, it is a “computational knowledge engine.”  What does that mean?  Well, I could try to explain it to you, but Phil Bradley has done a much better job than I could: Phil Bradley’s post on Wolfram|Alpha.

Most important thing to note: This is NOT a search engine.  But, really, please read the post above before trying it out.  It will save you a number of frustrations. 

Oh, and for the time being, you might want to confirm information you find here in a second source.  I did a search for “Memphis” and noticed that the current time was incorrect.
