This week we see the launch of a real alternative to Google. I won't call it a search engine as it really doesn't do it any justice but WolframAlpha.com is a genuine place to find facts in a hurry and really should be added to your favourites as a genuinely innovative information tool. Think of it as Google with a scientific calculator on steroids.
Steven Wolfram PhD in a number of areas and all round smart guy conceived an idea a number of years ago that all information can be sourced, compared and extrapolated to be used in any manner of way.
wolfram alpha is the result of this. Further explanation will only confuse you further - check it out now @ www.wolframalpha.com
