Wolfram Alpha is too academic and claustrophobic

Wolfram Alpha is probably a project designed by scientists that came from a science school.

It displays numbers, graphs, semantics and tables. I love how it presents information discovery like in the case of the term ‘apple’ where it displays the company and then the next option is about the fruit. I don’t know if it is using some form of page ranking or trending. Well apple as a brand is stronger compared to the fruit.

One other thing, I am stuck on the page and I get this feeling of being contained in a box. I guess it is backward to get all that I want from a single website. It feels like being in a library on your own with a huge book.

But then again, it is good to see an alternative to a growing behemont like Google. I just hope that this in not just a hype like Cuil.
