Wolfram Alpha is based on the research by Stephen wolfram. Although it’s tempting to think of Wolfram|Alpha as a place to look up facts, that’s only part of the story.

I am not much concerned about the internal structure yet as it takes just a single byte to ruin the whole program. But i love the way they have told the world on “How users search on Wolfram”
For me Wolfram is much like a answering machine coz i have a lot of confusing questiong for it to answer.

Without confusing you any more let me give you a few examples from the wolfram blog on how to use it -3

Like asking “307th digit of pi?”
“who won 1984 cricket world cup?”
“No. of teeth in a cow?”
