Wolfram Alpha Knowledge Search Engine

New search engine on the block. Is this a new generation of search engine or a great idea that won’t catch on? Either way it is looking like a brilliant idea and I’m sure a heck of a lot of work.

Wolfram Alpha Knowledge search engine will be launched today, Friday, May 15, beginning at 7pm CST. (so far they are late in launching it). Wolfram and his team have built what he calls a “computational knowledge engine” for the Web. So what does that mean? Basically it means that you can ask it factual questions and it computes answers for you in multiple formats. A screencast showing what it’s capable of is here. (You might need to use IE to view it)

Now this is one geeky search engine LOL.

Microsoft changes ‘Windows Genuine Advantage’

Microsoft will be changing to name of it’s activation and validation system from “Windows Genuine Advantage” to “Windows Activation Technologies” according to a report by Mary-Jo Foley.

However, the “Genuine” brand isn’t completely disappearing. A press release states that Microsoft will continue to deliver genuine updates and notifications for XP users. The program has been criticized for its punishment tactics and false-positive results, even though Microsoft has fixed some of these problems in Vista SP1.

According to Microsoft, Windows 7’s activation will be built on the same software protection platform that was part of Vista, with some minor tweaks made for Windows 7.

“In Windows 7 we modified this process: When customers choose to activate later they will see a dialog box highlighting how activation helps them identify if their copy of Windows is genuine and be allowed to proceed immediately without a 15-second delay. In Windows 7 we’ve made changes so that users will see more informative notifications messages and be able to more easily complete the tasks they need to.”, said Joe Willians, general manager, Worldwide Genuine Windows in a Q&A session.
