What I really like here is the opportunity to compute answers by using algorhitms. For example in the personal health area you can compare different physical exercise or calculate a weight loss regime. Based on computational and information input you can get info on the metabolic properties, estimated heart rate (and you can compare this with your real one), find equivalent activities, etc. This is an example of the unique value of Wolfram Alpha, you can't do this by using other answer engines.
