Brainboost is a natural language search engine - just type in your question and see what you get. Overall, I was pretty impressed, and I asked it some difficult questions, which it managed fairly well, such as:
What is the population of London? (Though it assumed I meant London UK, not London in Canada)
Where is London? (Gave me various good answers, mixed in with a few locations of hotels in London)
Why did the South lose the Civil War? (Wasn't too hot on that one, but linked accurately to websites)
Who is Phil Bradley? (Pulled the answer straight from DMOZ)
What's the best search engine (That one did confuse it rather a lot)
Is Google better than Yahoo? (Wasn't too bad on this one).
Definately worth trying out.
