    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... /:
