So far I am not at all impressed with it. Half the time it throws up an error saying something about reaching its limits and unable to service my request.

What is with these services which try to compare themselves to Google, touts how they are the next big thing, then can't even deliver on the hyped up promises by providing for decent server load?

It is a nice toy but has a long ways to go. Will be interesting to watch unlike cuil.

It's absolutely unexciting. "Wolfram does not know what to do with your input" is the most annoying thing I've ever seen.

The answers seem to general but also doesnt answer some of the easiest questions. I think it needed to wait a few more months, or maybe have pre-testers, if they didnt have any.

Still Wolfram Alpha isn't that tool that answers that aren't on the internet. For the moment it's good at solving some equations, drawing some graphics for the functions and any other "Mathematica" things.

But still he can't answer to ALL the questions that there are not available at the moment...I think it will continue to develop.

Anyway, it's good that something like this has been launched.

Wolfram Alpha is steadly rising to Number 1 PR. Just doing some general search and have occasionally seen Wolfram.
