Have you used Wolfram Alpha yet?

If you're thinking "Wolfram what now?" I don't blame you - the name's no "Google" but it could be big competition for the search engine giant, not to mention Wikipedia. Wolfram Alpha is a new "computational knowledge engine" which provides a huge cross-section of information and displays it beautifully. (I looked up my birthdate - narcissictic I know) and WA told me the day of the week, the position of the sun, and lots of other hard facts. When I put in the village I live in however, Wolfram drew a blank.

As CNET's review points out, it's better with stats than with more subjective subjects - but I think there's huge potential there.

Why not give it a try and let us know what you think?
