Google Nose: Search the Internet By Smell!

Google. What those web geniuses won't think of next.

A video introducing Google Nose (below) explains that the company's new BETA program allows users to "search for smells." Google Nose what it's doing!

How does it do this? Essentially, the product intersects "photons with infrasound waves" and "temporarily aligns molecules to emulate a particular scent."

There's even an Android version. These guys think of everything.

Once again, Google is redefining what's possible.

Or not. It's obviously not a real thing. April Fools!

Despite the promise by Google Nose BETA, the company's new fictional product, "to offer the sharpest olfactory experience available," it's all a hoax.

The technology just isn't there yet. Nor is the demand. We think. Honestly their videos are so well done that you almost believe what they're selling.

For instance: the "mobile aroma indexing program" at the heart of the product has amassed a "15 million scentibyte database of smells from around the world."

That just sounds awesome, whatever it means.

Gossip Rosie O'Donnell Refuses To Live In Trump Hotel

Rosie O'Donnell has decided not to stay at the Trump Chicago hotel when she tapes her new show.
She's doing this because of the fact Donald Trump plans on running a platform against homosexual marriage when he attempts to run for President. Trump said, "I just don't feel good about it. I don't feel right about it. I'm against it… I'm opposed to gay marriage."
O'Donnell is looking into other real estate options in Chicago.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), who called for a boycott of Trump's businesses, said in a statement, "Rosie O'Donnell has sent an important message to the majority of Americans - gay and straight - who don't agree with Donald Trump's statements against marriage equality for all loving and committed couples. Fair-minded people should think twice about supporting a businessman who courts our dollars but advocates denying gay and lesbian couples protections that all families need to take care of each other."
