this is old news regardless it's pretty amazing!
Wolfram Alpha is a computational search engine. According to Nova Spivach in a March 8,2009 TechCrunch article: Google is for finding things and Wolfram Alpha is for answering things.Stephen Wolfram got his Phd in Theoretical Physics at age 20 from Caltech. I wonder what would have happened to him in a present day classroom in the U.S. today? Would he have to wait for his classmates to catch up to his ability so there self esteem was not collectively hurt?
For those of you in the stock market, wolfram has some pretty cool stock comparison features.
