Default Wolfram|Alpha

Im actually having a fun time with this search engine.

Its not like Google in the fact that it dosnt return links to other websites, It gives you complete facts on what you ask.

Some random facts
Speed of Light :: 299 792 km/s (kilometers per second)

Fastest Car :: highest recorded speed of a production car: SSC Ultimate Aero
Speed the car went:: 256 mph (miles per hour)

Default RE: Wolfram|Alpha

The tech teachers at my school were introduced to this site and my math teacher actually decided to show it to us during my class. Very cool site indeed. Just look at the examples of what you can type in such as "1 slice of pizza" which returns results for the nutrition facts of pizzza. Also, type in a name to receive info about that name. I find it very useful for mathematics as well. Will definitel keep ya busy for a while.

Hmm, just messed around with it a bit. It does seem useful. Good for pulling up facts quickly.
