Google Q&A

I had a rough time tracking down any forum threads on the news Google released yesterday in a blog entry they named Just the facts, fast. Basically, Google is now providing a form of Ask Jeeves's SmartSearch, where you search on something like braveheart running time and it shows you this at the top of the results:

However, it still does not do what the other Q&A search engines or even MSN engine are doing. Like When was ben franklin born? or Who was the 27th president of the united states?. Questions students can ask the search engine on their mobile device when in a jam during a test.

Again, I am surprised there are very few threads on the topic, or at least I could not find many (even at WMW or SEW). DigitalPoint has a thread, but someone named it This is kind of neat..., which made it very difficult to locate. But there are tons of blogs and news sites writing about it.
