Stephen Wolfram's new knowledge engine, Wolfram Alpha goes live today, providing a new kind of search for Internet users. As a result, the Internets are alive with comments about how Alpha compares to Google. But that's something you shouldn't do.
Google unveiled a suite of new functions for its search engine yesterday, and there's some evidence that the company is chasing down live data for its search query responses. There's also a new functionality that seems designed to take on Wolfram Alpha, the upcoming tool from mathematician Stephen Wolfram.
