- So that new "computational knowledge engine" Wolfram Alpha is now available.
It's slower than molasses -- not too surprising, since everyone want to give it a try.
Amazingly, all of the search output is in graphics files. Yes, all text is rendered as a graphic, so it's impossible to copy and paste it. Maybe that's why it's so damn slow.
What's up with that? Are they trying to invent an un-copyable site? There's an option to create a PDF file of the results -- but that doesn't seem to be working so I don't know if that will also be uncopyable graphical text.
