Just a Few Ways to use Wolfram AlphaHot PC Tips - Wolfram Alpha (6)

From Wikipedia, Wolfram Alpha is a computational knowledge engine or answer engine developed by Wolfram Research. It is an online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from externally sourced “curated data”, rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine might.

Wolfram Alpha, which was released on May 18, 2009, is based on Wolfram’s earlier flagship product Mathematica, a computational platform or toolkit that encompasses computer algebra, symbolic and numerical computation, visualization, and statistics capabilities. Additional data is gathered from both academic and commercial websites.
