Hi folks,

I found this little gem today called Encarta Instant Answers which you can use with MSN Messenger to answers to those questions you’ve always wanted to know about.  All you have to do is add encarta@conversagent.com to you messenger contacts.

I asked the following 2 questions:

Jeff Alexander says:

Jeff Alexander says:

Encarta® Instant Answers says:

Calories in orange

1.0 cup, sections has 85 calories

1.0 fruit (2-5/8" dia) has 62 calories
