Do I need to say anything more about this upcoming search engine :P
It doesn’t suck. It’s not a search engine, never was. It’s a “computational knowledge engine”.
From Wolfram Alpha’s own FAQ…
“Is Wolfram|Alpha a search engine?
No. It’s a computational knowledge engine: it generates output by doing computations from its own internal knowledge base, instead of searching the web and returning links.”
I enjoy your site and subscribe to your newsletter but please, please, please, don’t go down the easy-answer, quick conclusion, stupid route. Dig just a little deeper.
Please don’t let blogging maintain its (current) reputation of, mostly, biased and superficial ‘journalism’.
Thanks, and I, generally, do love your blog.
I want to agree to what u said but fortunately Wolframalpha is a computational search engine. Try putting a mathematical query into it. It responds quite decently to it.
Being die hard fans of google we would try to bash thing that says ” me kill google .”
But then google has its own share of puches and some body needs to come around say ” Hey — hang on buddy ” . coz for sure the yahoo’s and the msn’s of the world have given up long time back.
@ Marc @vivek – Thanks a lot for comment. Thanks for the appreciation and for the feedback, however I think you misunderstood my intentions for this post. I’m very much happy with WolframAlpha :) I used the tongue smiley (:P) to ensure that no one gets the wrong message, but I guess – I should have been more clear with it.
I’m always in favor of new startups and new search engines as I love to see the competition, so I won’t mind switching the search engine, if it’ll provide me the search results that I’m interested in. Guess what! now a days, I spend most of my time on Twitter and I make a point that while doing any research, I use Twitter’s search. :)
Next time, I’ll be cautious before making these kind of PJs (poor jokes) :P
