A new super-duper search-and-calculate engine

It's called wolfram alpha, and there's an article by Conrad Walters in today's SMH.

It's the 500th anniversary of John Calvin, so here's the result I got when I 'wolframmed' him.

And here's the result when I wolframmed my exact birthday.

Here, intriguingly, is what I got by wolframming "10% of 365 days".

Sydney rainfall.


One day, this could turn out useful.

Not so super in my experience. I typed in my hometown, Guyra, and it brought up Guara in Brazil. So I tried Parramatta - it didn't know what I was talking about.
