As I browse through the “blogosphere” (weird, the first time that I used this term) I came across something really interesting. MSN search (beta) can solve your algebra problems, at least some of them:

Goto MSN search (beta) and enter something like ** x^2+x^3=36 ** and see the result:

Groovy! It seems though that more complex problems are not solved via this search engine – I guess no problem as you wouldn’t expect that your search engine can solve any mathematical problems in the first place.

Google’s been doing similar things for months.

Hmm…yes and no. Google can really do conversions (e.g. “1 inch in meter” will give you the result that 1 inch = 0.0254 meter), but I think it can’t “solve” equations (yet)?!

Google isn’t as intelligent as MSN;-) Simple calculation is no problem: Just try 5+3 or 4^2. But equations – no chance…

True, true…and what are you doing up so late? Hehe, time to catch some sleep, 2am – eek!
