    Remember this post since this service will grow in to something big -- and hopefully wonderful. :)

    For example. No way to know the nutritional value of Condensed Milk... Plug in and voila:

    Of course, you can do many many different things and I think I lost about three hours yesterday. :)

    Yeah, I've been playing with this, too.

    The thing to remember that this isn't a search engine to replace Google, but rather it's a source that should revolutionize how we get information regarding any topic. This just may become my "reference" tool if they keep it up.

    Your example search isn't the greatest, as I got useful info in the first 10 Google hits for "nutritional value of Condensed Milk." But the engine itself looks very promising.

    Don't think Google. This is an entirely different type of resource.
