Wolfram Alpha's power focused in a dictionary
Wolfram Alpha is a website and a service that works like a search engine that thinks.

Usually we use it for things like 'how many working days between now and 27 November" and usually we then go off on a rabbit hole of exploring other facts and answers. What we've perhaps never used it for is anything to do with words and now Wolfram Words 1.2 wants to correct that.

Richard Greenfield from BTIG believes Netflix is replacing TV viewing time in households and is the second-most watched in homes with cable and the subscription service. He had previously expected it to be 25th rather than 15th in the quarter.
