Wolfram Alpha

Stephen Wolfram has built “a computational knowledge engine” that could mark the biggest web breakthrough since Google.

It computes the answers to factual questions like, “What country is Timbuktu in?” or “How many protons are in a hydrogen atom?” But not questions people actually want to know the answers to, like “Is my son gay?” P.S. This is probably the unsexiest trend I have ever posted.
