hmm i still like google Q&A much better. Google accepts "who is the president of the US", ...USA", ...United States", ...United States of America" and for all those gives "George W Bush" rather than "bush".

"Who is currently president of the United States?" is the first query i've seen so far that gives anything remotely resembling "George W Bush" on Lexxe

Lexxe doesnt really work that well for me, but BrainBoost does:

When did East and West Germany unite?

Brainboost is just as bad for me. Cant get POTUS either and really tends to show snippets just like a normal google search rather than direct answers
