About every year Wolfram Research releases a new version of its data processing and mathematical environment, Mathematica. And never are these upgrades skimpy, but this year, Wolfram has outdone itself. Mathematica 8 has reached a new height in ease-of-use, power and integration with the vast data source that lies hidden in Wolfram Alpha (Wolfram’s own data search engine). Users can now enter commands in plain English, and the capabilities of Mathematica now extend further into the statistical, financial and image processing world than ever.
