I'm *so* sick of the constant comparisons to Google. I'm almost prepared to go so far as to say these people are actually *stupid*, but perhaps they're just a little dense. Sure the mainstream media is constantly telling us Wolfram|Alpha is a threat to Google, but *everyone else* knows, and is telling you, that's not the case. Anyone incapable of understanding what Wolfram|Alpha is and how it works should keep a plug in their pie hole.

Yeah, it's silly it's being hyped up as a google killer.

It's still in beta, and it's definitely an interesting project. I mean, come on, it can do stuff that google can't :)

I think that would result in one hell of a lot of plugged pie holes.
