We all love google for all the amazing things they have brought to us, and for the most part for no out of pocket expense to us. But there are some other companies entering the search scene. Of course they will not be replacing google, not even close, but they will be offering something unique that google does not. As to whether or not google will just release a sub search page that does the same thing, it's too early to tell.
But let's go over the search engine companies I am referring to. The type of search engine that I have wanted for some time now, is finally becoming reality. It's wolframalpha.com. Google can give us hundreds of webpages that are along the right track of what we are looking for, however whether or not those sources can be trusted or not is another thing. Wolframalpha.com attempts to index sites that can be thought of as trusted sources. So let's say you're looking for historical facts or statistical data on something, we usually go to wikipedia if we want something we can somewhat fully trust. Now we have another option, hop on over to wolframalpha.com, put in your search terms, and see what results you get. This would be great for searching for information for a research report or for educational purposes. Two thumbs up to the crew at wolframalpha.
