Check out Wolfram
I've been rather sad and spent the last hour or so playing with Wolfram|Alpha
- absolutely brilliant. Google watch your backs!
Long time since I've had so much fun, especially with scientific calculations and equations!
Saddo, I know!

Don't think google need worry - this is a totally different service.
Couldn't get it to convert kilograms into stone/pounds (ie nonmetric conversions) but google calc wont do that either.
Did enjoy the query "weather in ngong last wednesday" (which it got fairly right).

The power with Wolfram is that it is growing all the time. Pretty exciting stuff.

the register have the right view i think Taking a first bite out of Wolfram Alpha ? The Register
It's not really lined up to be a google-killer, it just doesn't have the same indexing ability - but it is a good step foward to something much more exciting and new

Well, that cheered me up.
estimated average cruising airspeed of an unladen African swallow
there is unfortunately insufficient data to estimate the velocity of an African swallow (even if you specified which of the 47 species of swallow found in Africa you meant)

I found the pH of cheese by accident using Wolfram.

This will be useful for food technology - calculating nutritional information

What do you have to put in to get the pH of cheese?

if object A travels east at 155,000,000 meters per second and object B travels west at 150,000,000 meters per second how fast are they moving away from each other?
mmm, may need a little re-wording to get the result I want....
