    I've gotten into the alpha testing, and wow.

    It's like Wolfram Alpha, but for humans. Its simply great, especially considering this is an alpha release.

    Tbh, I pretty much expect to see this as one of those things that start to shape the future. Its fantastic.

    Now, it just needs an iOS, webOS, and Android app...

    Because its a video. Its like Google in that you can search for various topics to get information, like Wikipedia in that it contains all that info, and like YouTube in that it creates a slideshow with narrating to tell you about the topic.

    Well what advantages does it have that should make me use it instead of the Wolfram Alpha app on my iPod?

    Significantly easier to use and manage.

    Although, for mobile use you would have to have an Android phone with Flash, because that's what the videos it plays are.
