Been using it for months. Yeah, it's awesome. I wish it was around when I was taking college maths, would have saved me some headache on problems I'd get stuck on.

Nice....

I asked it "What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?"

Interesting answer.

That is unbelievable, its asks for the species and calculates for the European.

It doesn't know anything about guns, though. Pity.

it must be done purposely.

amazed that it could calculate gps sat trajectories but nothing about guns, ar15 comes up a r 15 a mathematical version.
m16 did you know its a stellar constellation?

still very amazing technology. with voice recognition, working, it is pure star trek tng in my lifetime. combine that with holographic manipulation like in iron man2.
wow amazingly scary. ai is here.

the movie blew chunks. just like watching a lame gundam episode. seriously, they look like shrunk down poser gundams.

Thanks for reminding me about this site. I typed in two different stock tickers and it returned a boat load of statistical data. Neat. I was thinking about purchasing Mathmatica to play with statistical data, but I'll think I will hold off now.

Does it actually do anything? It keeps on saying "Welcome to Zombo.com" over and over again. It's pretty annoying :sleeping:

If you stare at it long enough it'll make you commit suicide.

Wolfram Alpha is so very, very awesome.

As soon as you learn the formatting it's a HUGE help with any math homework you might be doing.

I listened to an interview with the creator a while back on Leo LaPorte's show on KFI. Very interesting guy.
