  2. what a terrible name though
  3. gobar

    Let's see who will actually use it...

    "...The system is beautiful, and the user interface is already quite simple and clean. In addition, answers include computationally generated diagrams and graphs -- not just text. It looks really cool. But it is also designed by and for people with IQ's somewhere in the altitude of Wolfram's -- some work will need to be done dumbing it down a few hundred IQ points so as to not overwhelm the average consumer with answers that are so comprehensive that they require a graduate degree to fully understand..."
  5. I'm looking forward to it to ask questions like "what is the fair value of the market?", "When will the larket rally?", "Bonds or stocks"? "Time to buy or sell gold?" etc.

  7. Wolfram Alpha started yesterday. Pretty cool. I wandered around in the site for an hour.

    Be sure to take the guided tour provided by Wolfram himself.
  8. It is not very functional at all.

    I am asking some fairly basic questions and keep getting 'Wolfram|Alpha isn't sure what to do with your input' as a response.
  9. Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.
