Wolfram Alpha

There’s a new search engine around, called Wolfram Alpha, but it’s quite different.

Instead of giving you a list of webpages that relate to what you have searched for, Wolfram Alpha will display a list of facts and data. For example, try searching for China. You will see data regarding population, religion, race and economy. Searching for a particular company will show you it’s revenue and profit etc. Searching for Calcium will give you information about the element, and so on.

Downside is that if you are looking for webpages, you won’t get any. Wolfram Alpha is extremely useful though, when you are doing some coursework or an assignment and need a list of facts for one particular thing, nothing comes close to beating it.
