Great idea, gay name. Google is kind of dorky and catchy... "Google it". I mean, "WolframAlpha it" just doesn't have that snap to it.  :sleepy:

Must work out something to throw at it.     :cheesy:

gnubler:
Agreed.  :laugh: "I dunno...go Wolframalphatize it."

Google already does pretty much everything they described - calculations, conversions, etc. I don't like monopolies and I think competition is good, but I don't see this as terribly useful.

Ear:
Okay, good point. Wolf it is a little better.

I just went and threw a few things at it and it had no idea what to do with it. I do think it's cool but a different animal than google.
