Default Anyone hear of this wolfram alpha thing?

Apparently it's being launched today...
wolframalpha.com

So you can ask it stuff and it'll compute it. What will happen when someone asks it for the final digit of pi? (not quite up yet, but it's being launched soon)

EDIT: It's up, and it knows all that you need to know

It's pretty awesome, but it takes about 5 tries for each page to actually load.

Q. Why did they make you?

A. Wolfram|Alpha isn't sure what to do with your input.



Input interpretation:
How can you help me?
Response:
I can help you to compute.

Input:
Compute for me

Assuming "me" is a US state | Use as referring to internet sites or a book or a word instead
Input interpretation:
Maine (US state)

Woah, pretty neat little gadget! Could use some more Chuck Norris, though. Useful in homework and so on.

I visit the chuck norris link, and I get the page, and now I can't get it to work again. CHUCK NORRIS!

Edit: no, it's just the link is bad or something...
