L-I's Picks of Wolfram|Alpha Widgets For the Info Geeks

Last September, I posted about Wolfram|Alpha here on L-I. I've originally created a separate page for the W|A widgets (prev. the Tools page) but since Blogger only lets you create 10 static pages, I have to remove it to give space to other pages which are more important to the blog. As I promised, here they are - L-I's Picks of Wolfram|Alpha Widgets.

What is Wolfram|Alpha?

W|A is a computational knowledge engine: it generates output by doing computations from its own internal knowledge base, instead of searching the web and returning links.

What you see above isn't an image, it's a widget! Try typing "where am I" and it will return your location by detecting your IP address
- and even the satellite image of where you are via Bing Maps.

>> To know more about W|A, read L-I's article:

The Widgets

Tip: Try :-F

If you want to request a specific type of widget, feel free to post it below and L-I will hunt it for you. If there isn't any of it available, I'll try to make one! :-)
