RGBa Browser Support
Too bad it doesn't work in shitty IE..
RGBa is a way to declare a color in CSS that includes alpha transparency support. Since IE supports conditional stylesheets, we can bust out those and a proprietary Microsoft CSS filter to accomplish the same result.An invention that could change the internet for ever - News, Gadgets & Tech - The Independent
Wolfram Alpha,Introduction to Wolfram|Alpha by Stephen Wolfram
Super search engine to be launched 18 May 2009
Stephen Wolfram è quello che ha inventato Mathematica. Adesso lancia una specie di "Google della conoscenza", una riga in cui puoi accedere alla conoscenza e inserirla in calcoli. Sono le cose che mi rendono orgoglioso della specie umana.Stephen Wolfram Reveals Radical New Formula for Web Search | Epicenter

Consider a question like “How many Nobel Prize winners were born under a full moon?” Google would find the answer only if someone had previously gone through the whole list, matched the birthplace of each laureate with a table of lunar phases, and posted the results. Wolfram says his engine would have no problem doing this on the fly. “Alpha makes it easy for the typical person to answer anything quantitatively,” he asserts. Wolfram needs some prodding before he talks about the business model. “Plan A is to get this out,” he says. “Maybe it will be a giant piece of philanthropy.” On the other hand, he adds, “we’re happy to license this.” He thinks Alpha would be welcome inside applications, on mobile devices, and in a generalized search engine. Wolfram has already shown Alpha to former intern Brin and thinks that it could make sense to have the engine running behind the scenes in Google searches. Another possible source of revenue: licensing databases.10 Even Better Wolfram Alpha Easter Eggs
