Do you know that Wolfram|Alpha (previously thought to be Google Killer) is actually a buggy calculator? Shocking screenshot included, possibly revealing its first computational error.

Wolfram|Alpha’s first computational error?

Inglourious Basterds is a new film directed by Quentin Tarantino and August 21st 2009 is supposed to be its release date.

What’s that grey-colored text (it’s not really a text, it is actually a GIF) on the right hand side of the release date?

Wolfram|Alpha’s first computational error?

OMG!? How can this be? August 21st 2009 ‘was’ 0.25 years ago according to Wolfram|Alpha!? WTF is this? Is this its very first computational error? Beep! Beep!

Not seen other computational errors, but as for facts it is a mine of misinformation. Eg see http://billscience.blogspot.com/2009/05/wolfram-alpha.html for factual errors on Wolfram Alpha
