On this group, it's hard to find anyone willing to say anything nice
about Wolfram Alpha, and it's even harder to find anyone anywhere
willing to say anything nice about the $50 iPhone/iTouch W|A App
(especially the $50 part), but the combination is now a powerful
technical weapon. A puzzlement.

Just as mysterious is the invisibility (and the continued clumsiness)
of WebMathematica with its facilities for generating server apps
accessible to browsers on handhelds.

I'd have either in a minute if the economy hadn't collapsed and if I
weren't eating cat food.
