Great. There goes my day. So much for being productive.

This is promising. I entered, "How much are apples and oranges?" It came back with a prompt to search for the term as a musical item. Then it gave me a couple of pages of the nutritional breakdown of apples and oranges side by side.

Then I asked, "Which billionaire owns WolframAlpha?" It returned a page about the 1960 Marilyn Monroe movie, Let's Make Love.

I asked it 'what is the answer to everything', came back with 42, so I'm hooked.

I put in "Who the hell is Zaneeta Shinn?" and ti came back with "yee gods".

I thought I'd REALLY stump it. I asked: why has the U.S. deteriorated in the last several decades?

Without hesitation... it popped up two images.
