Wolfram Alpha Now Live (Er, Was Live)

Wolfram Alpha, the much anticipated fact engine, is now live. That means, you can go to wolframalpha.com and test it out for yourself.

Keep in mind, Wolfram Alpha is not a Google competitor, it is a beast of its own. Do comment and let us know your thoughts.

For more about this new search engine, see Danny’s write up named Impressive: The Wolfram Alpha “Fact Engine”.

Update: Seems like Wolfram Alpha is having major issues. So they may have taken it back offline.

Postscript 2: Wolfram contacted us to let us know this was just a test. A Wolfram rep said, “what people saw yesterday was just a little flicker test, done in the middle of the our load testing.”
