According to @TechCrunch, Qwiki isn’t a piece of hardware. Instead, it’s a piece of software meant to run on the web and as an app on mobile devices. What it does is present to you data about millions of topics in an extremely interesting and visual way. Imagine if someone created a movie highlight reel of Wikipedia pages — that’s sort of what Qwiki is like. You search for something — a topic, a person, etc — and Qwiki talks to you, telling you all you need to know about what you searched for, while also showing you key things about the subject or person.

Annie Sells asks, Have you seen Wall-E?

Qwiki is the world’s Auto. Instead of searching the tube with a remote control or scrolling through movies on your computer to save to your Nextfix, all you have to do is pick a topic and sit back.

Beam me up Scottie.

Quickie is not longer going to be a slang term for busy parents, people are going to hear it and think instant info.
