It takes a lot in a website to amaze me these days, BUT THIS IS IT!  THIS IS SIMPLY THE BEST SITE I'VE SEEN IN A LONG WHILE!  AMAZING!  For me, it's a whole new dimension in website information and how it can be searched and is presented!  It's a WOW!  WolframAlpha is quite simply a stunning  "computational knowledge engine."  It's so much more than a search engine - it takes accumulated knowledge of our society and makes it instantly programmable for the user.

This site can help you find solutions in many subjects.

from Wikipedia
Wolfram Alpha (written on the webpage as Wolfram|Alpha) is an answer engine developed by Wolfram Research. It is an online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from structured data, rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine would.[3] It was announced in March 2009 by Stephen Wolfram, and was released to the public on May 15, 2009.[1] It was voted the greatest computer innovation of the year by Popular Science. [4]

An iPhone application was released on 19 Oct 2009, to provide an optimized interface for mobile access. [18]

Watch the 14 minute screencast, and you'll be captivated with all the answers you can get.

To use the engine, got to
