Google does a great job at key word searches but it is less adept at answering questions like the follow:
- What time is it at Google Headquarters?
- Is Jennifer Lopez single?
- Who wrote the Principia Mathematica?
- Who are Queen Elizabeth II’s grandchildren?
- List the US states as of the third July 1832?
- Is a Dolphin a mammal?

It’s a hugely cool and ambitious idea. Early beta’s were slow and a bit frustrating but the newest release appears to be much more polished and usable. The demo video is an excellent walk-through with commentary.
