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:

Yeah, but that would be "Wolf It!" in no time.    :laugh: 

This one caught my eye.

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.

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.

Yeah, after looking a little closer it is different than google and I think it will take some time for them to amass the information to answer your queries.

It doesn't work. I asked it what Earendil's pant size is and it gave me the population of Arendal, Norway.

oh come now. You can't give it the impossible to figure and then expect results..  There are no negative zero size pants for Sasquatches.

I was afraid to search for "ninjaPB_43 no pants". NSFW, probably.
