While Bing’s busy launching its new decision engine and Wolfram Alpha tries to wow us with its computational prowess, Google has publicly launched Google Squared.

Here’s how it looks in practice:
I’m just not seeing how this type of data is going to appeal to the masses. In fact, it makes the limited appeal of Wolfram Alpha look down right sexy.
I tell you what. Let’s both watch the video explanation, and then you can drop me a comment with your thoughts. Deal? Thanks!
