To be honest, I think the Google answer you cite is much more useful. By the question "how old is Gordon Brown?" Most people would assume you'd want it to the nearest year (at his age) not down to day accuracy and by providing his birthday you could see how close to 57 or 58 he actually is. The TK answer is ludicrously contrived and long-winded.

Phil Bradley

Sorry David, but I really don't see how '57' is more accurate and helpful than 57 years, 7 months and 2 days old. And 'ludicrously contrived and long winded' is a bit harsh IMO. However, ymmv, and clearly does! :)
