In case you have not heard, there is a new search engine around - it is supposed to give you answers rather than search results. For instance it can tell you when Barack Obama was born or the meaning of life - based on this article: http://online.wsj.com/video/andy-jordan ... 60722.html

However, it is not that bright really. When asked about GMAT - it thought GMAT was an airport in Morocco and that MBA was a drug. I assumed it was wrong, but could it be true that MBA is a drug???

It's an interesting idea, but I think I'd prefer to stick with Google at least until they work out the kinks.

On the other hand, they only promised answers - not *correct* answers.
