The past month has been a busy one for the search engine market.

Wolfram|Alpha (read our review), a new “computational knowledge engine” was launched, and looks set to provide scientists and students with a good place to start  research.

We don’t think it will give Google a run for its money though, which is exactly what Bing ( wants to do.

Bing is Microsoft’s latest attempt at strangling a bit of the search market away from Google, and to a lesser extent Yahoo. At this stage Bing doesn’t offer much of a value-add so we’ll be sticking with Google for the time being. It is worth a look though, as it offers some interesting results differences to Google.

What will be interesting to see, is if Microsoft has learnt any lessons from the thus far failed Cuil experiment.
