Wolfram Alpha “Handwrites” Answers For April Fools’ Day
Move over there just a little bit, Google.
Even Wolfram Alpha, the computation knowledge engine (as it calls itself), is getting in on the April Fools’ Day gags. For at least a day, the company has announced that it’s now the “handwritten knowledge engine.” Ask it any question, and Wolfram Alpha shows results that look like someone printed them by hand.
Google did something similar a couple years ago when it used the Comic Sans font to display all of its search results.
So far this year, nothing from Bing, Yahoo, Blekko or DuckDuckGo for April Fools’ Day. Then again, it’s still March 31st where I’m sitting.
