Wolfram Alpha for iPhone released – amazing app but…

Stephen Wolfram was born in London, UK. Some people consider him to be a genius but critics say that his theories, like the one expressed in his book “New Kind of Science”: that universe is a cellular automaton – are totally not original but just rewriting of stuff that other people formulated and proved and generally in the era of simulation he is just justifying status quo and not presenting any new paradigm shift.

You might doubt in his theories but his program Mathematica (owned now by his company “Wolfram Research”) – for symbolic calculations and visualizations – really brought a breakthrough in science and engineering. Next major practical (not just another theory) endeavor of Wolfram Research is “Wolfram Alpha” – a search engine that is not just spitting out links to some dinky websites with good SEO, but a search engine that has knowledge engine built-in into itself!

Imagine asking a question in natural language or symbolic formula and getting visualizations and computation results! Wolfram Alpha is amazing. It’s much more than Google, it is like having an all-knowing genius whom can you ask stuff.

Now, Wolfram Alpha is available on the iPhone, as an app! But there is one tiny problem:

HTC Tattoo unboxing video

A little over a month ago HTC announced that they would soon launch another Google Android powered handset called the HTC Tattoo. Surprisingly soon after that announcement HTC have launched the Tattoo and we’ve just managed to get our hands on one for review.

The HTC Tattoo


The HTC Tattoo is the smallest Android powered handset to be released so far and possibly one of the cheaper ones too. Unlike all the other Android handsets this one has only a QVGA (240×320) display versus the HVGA (320×480) found on the others. This makes for a much smaller, compact and lightweight handset. I’ve only used it briefly today but I have to say that my initial opinion is that it’s a really nice looking handset and I like the design of the back, much more interesting than the usual black or silver.

So we’ll be reviewing the HTC Tattoo over the next week or so and will have the review online for you as soon as we can. For now, have a look at the unboxing video below to see the handset in a little more detail. Note that although the box isn’t the full retail package the handset itself is full and final.
