This is truly amazing and worth the time to see the intro all the way =
thru.


http://www.wolframalpha.com/screencast/introducingwolframalpha.html

It does raise several questions for me though.

I guess that it uses the vast web to fish info but how?  Does it use =
spiders?

Once you watch this then maybe you can give me some insight as to how =
something like this is even possible.  Could I use this somehow for a =
automotive database as well?  Lets say that I wanted to see how common =
the p0440 code on a 1999 honda accord would be and further, what the =
average accumulated miles is? =20
