    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?

    Not to worry, though - Google has the good business sense to experiment a little, and today they've unveiled the Google Nose, the world's first scent-based search engine.

    It's certainly a bold new step for Google. 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.

    Still, I'm glad to see that innovation is alive and well. Will it pan out for them, though?

    Who nose?

    I fell for it. I forgot what today was.
    I actually thought Google could come up with something like this.

    Apparently, you think the only people alive on the planet Earth live in the United States of America.
    FYI, I live in Australia, where it has been April fools for 14 hours and 57 minutes.

    SOOO many announced "products" come up to a week before the actual day to build the hype and watch the suckers reactions, only to be revealed as a gag on that special day.

    To be honest, I'm usually far more interested in Think Geek's 4/1 joke... Those have actually become products... Super awesome/hilarious products... "I'm Bacon!"

    I keep on typing Gahars in Google Nose [BETA], but it's not spitting out any result. I thought Google would do so much better than this... /:
