Selling Wolf Tickets

Sometime this month WolframAlpha will be launching. Some say it will be a Google-killer. I beg to differ.

Simply put WolframAlpha is a computational knowledge engine, whereas Google is a grammatical search engine. Where WolframAlpha will be responding questions with piecharts, Google suggests you what sites are most relevant and important to your search.

Essentially its apples and oranges. Its like comparing the Weather Channel to lets say...a PBS Documentary. Data versus specific info.

Either way Im looking forward to it launching.
