Nerd Alert: Wolfram Alpha

I've been hearing about the latest search engine Wolfram for a few weeks now. Today I finally went ahead and checked it out. It's rather fucking awesome!

If you want to find out who Jessica Alba is dating it's worthless but if you want to know the distance from NYC to Budapest then it's amazing. That search will also include the time difference, population, elevation, flight time, etc. You can also do cool shit like look up your birth date which will tell you the day of the week you were born plus the position of the moon that night and other nifty tidbits.

Sure there's a rather small portion of the population that would use something like this but I find it fascinating. It's very powerful from a computational stand point. So to all my nerd brethren, jump on this!
