The newest challenger to Google would rather figure out the answers itself rather than point you to another site; WolframAlpha is the name of this site, and it launches this week amid hoopla that it’s a Google-killer. Can the awkwardly-named site really challenge Google’s dominance?
I wouldn’t bet any Orlando vacations on it. After all, Google is far more than just a search engine, these days. It boasts a list of sites and services so vital to the Internet that it’s just silly to think a simple search engine can replace it.
Only if WolframAlpha does all that, too, will it even stand a chance.
