Worth knowing: DuckDuckGo – an alternative to Google

Spend some time getting to know the best search alternative to Google/Bing: DuckDuckGo.  This is a search engine that promises to respect user’s privacy (that is, it does not track & store its users clicks). And it builds in other search tools as well, like WolframAlpha

Always remember: there is more to life than Google.

Ahhh, love that Wolfram Alpha…

One can now know, literally, what flights are in the sky above you.

To access this literal, real-time flight search, just type “flights overhead” into the Wolfram Alpha search box, and voilá! If you’re using a desktop computer, Wolfram Alpha does its best to figure out your location automatically and — if there are flights in the sky above you — lists the commercial flights in the area. You’ll also see the planes’ altitude and angle against the horizon, how far away they are and the aircraft type.
