We are appropriating Gahars' thread. Any April fools stuff in USN will be merged with this thread at the speed of green. ---- Google is one of the most powerful forces on the web. Their search engine is basically ubiquitous - there's a reason people say "Google It" instead of "Bing It" (The Amazing Spider-Man and Hawaii Five-0 reboot notwithstanding). Unfortunately, it's kind of limiting. I mean, only searching through text and images? What are we, cavemen?

I mean, AR glasses, self-driving cars, smartphones, etc. are one thing - but a smell-based browsing experience? It's crazy - indeed, it might leave some incensed.
