Default Wolfram|Alpha

Check this site out, it's some "computational knowledge engine".
Try typing in anything from name to cities to combinations of fruits.


How did they even do this

Wolfram are the makers of an amazing piece of software called Mathematica. It costs $2500 and has insane capabilities.

I'm more of a fan of MATLAB though.

it would be really useful for my trig and physics classes, if only it showed how it solves the problem and the work to get there instead of just giving the answer, because alot of times I don't need the answer, I just want to understand how it gets there.
