On Wolfram|Alpha

"Today's Wolfram|Alpha is the first step in an ambitious, long-term project to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable by anyone. You enter your question or calculation, and Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and growing collection of data to compute the answer."

Saw this marvel gaining hype on CNN yesterday. Very nice to have but not something I could use on a daily basis like Google or Wikipedia. Check out Mashable's Top Ten Wolfram Alpha Easter Eggs. Would like to see what the masses make of this thing. Reminds me of the attention Cuil was getting before launch. Remember, Cuil was once dubbed as Google's search engine rival. Funny.
