Mathematica 8 "natural language" capabilities

Has anyone been able to get the "natural language" capabilities of Mathematica 8 to work as described? If I type Ctrl+= followed by

=09plot sin x and cos x

as listed in the examples, I get an error message saying that no Mathematica translations exist. Yet if I evaluate

=09WolframAlpha["plot sin x and cos x"]

I get the output I would expect.

Many thanks,
