  • Delivered-to:

I tried siri on "what is the quadratic equation" and got an answer
that appeared to be from Wolfram|Alpha.

I tried Wolfram|Alpha from a web browser on the question:

"tell me about siri"

and got a interpretation

"tell me about crab"

2nd definition  "a quarrelsome grouch".

5th definition : "a stroke of the oar that either misses the water or 
digs too deeply".

The others seem irrelevant...
