Anyone else have a play wih this? Saw this article on Slate too;
Wolfram Alpha, yet another pretender to Google's throne. - By Farhad Manjoo - Slate Magazine
Tend to agree with it for the most part, although the device is still feeling its way, of course. I mean it's cute to type in "How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man?" but typing in someone else's lyrics doesn't really work (Travis' "Why does it always rain on me?" produced a pretty useless result....). At this stage, it's a bit of a nerd humour toy. Asking the meaning of life will get you "42" as the answer, for example.
One of the commenters on the article also made the point that there's no way of knowing whether WA has got it right, with Google at least there's a raft of links to choose from to verify answers to a degree. WA just gives you an answer, at this stage.
Thoughts? Would love to see some really wacky results of queries posted here too. Keep it PG, people. haha
