I’ve been trying to use the computational “search” engine WolframAlpha for several days now. The short version is that the overwhelming majority of my “requests” and inquiries come back with the dreaded “I do not know what to do” response. Alpha is not ready for prime time. It does know how to turn 0.06V*e/(h-bar) into 91.2THz, but that ain’t gonna cut it. It was supposed to be so much more. It does know how to answer all sorts of cutesy questions like “what are you?”, but try to use it for real work and you will be disappointed.

Let me know when WolframBeta is ready to test.
