Type in a word and a dictionary definition on top of the search results or adjacent to it. I love this feature because it kills all those spammy dictionary websites like, Mirriam-Webster (that's right you two. I said it. You are spammy).
Why don't we all just give up and let Google do everything for us:
Google, bring me the head of Alfred Garcia

Still worth $15 billion and unlikely to need the support of AARP in his dotage, nevertheless, Steve Ballmer leaving is worth billions in stock price uptick to Microsoft. That's got to hurt. Why? Only a billionaire could tell you why he would care, but clearly, it ain't something that Ballmer was chomping at the bit to do.
KDE Connect can best be described as a utility that allows your Linux desktop to receive Android phone notifications, while transforming your smarpthone into a remote control for music and video players.
We've orgasmatron'd ourselves into a stupor over Chromecast, but we still have four TiVo boxes lying around the house, one is out of use, and one is even a TiVo Premier HD, or some such crap.
The $200 MinnowBoard - developed by Santa Clara and CircuitCo Electronics - is a motherboard that measures 4 inches (10.16 centimeters) by 4 inches, sans casing.
If Google starts to get really evil its redemption will come from having given us Chromecast. This $11 piece of hardware should, unless the world is insane, kill the attached computing display for ever. Because, we should never have to lug around a laptop, or set up a room with a projector or a TV for meetings, or even have to go through the nightmare that is Hulu Plus on Tivo Premier.
Silicon Valley's sense of giving is disproportionately low compared to its sense of getting. So, you have to take every seemingly earth shattering we-are-the-world announcement with a tablespoon of salt. Lord love them, the billionaire geeks running the world really try to make it a better place without every having had to really live in it, like the rest of us.
A few years ago, way back in the late 90s, Citrix Online, the maker of GoToMeeting, was known as Expertcity. They had a service to provide computer help using experts who would connect to users via a browser based screen sharing application.

What the....2560x1440 5.5 inch smartphone screen with 538ppi. Smartphones will eventually turn everyone into squinty eyed misanthropes with radiation burns.
At least two new mini-PCs powered by Intel (x86) Celeron chips, paired with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of solid state storage (SSD), recently surfaced on AliExpress.
The new trend in smartphone design is: Screw it! We've run out of ideas so, let's just make it big. Everyone will see that our phone is clearly different because it is so damn big! It will have to hang off people's backs so other people will see our phone, our brand, and it will be really big. Right there, in their faces.
We will not be ignored. End of missive from smartphone marketing department head, Dickie Little.
The Kaiboer Q7 set-top box is somewhat different from the many STBs we've covered here on TG Daily in recent weeks.
We've covered a number of Android-powered PCs-on-sticks here at TG Daily in recent months. However, this is the first time we're talking about a PC-on-a-stick powered by Aliyun OS instead of Google's popular mobile operating system.
KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo's offers his predictions about Apple's upcoming A7 SoC, the processor expected to power the long-awaited iPhone 5s.
Between 23:52 and 23:57 BST on 16th August Google went down. The results put the fear of Google into every webmaster's heart.
GoSqaured, a company that has its own analytics platform, had noted in its Engineering Blog:
Georgia Tech researchers released an app into the Apple Store that masked malware as generic app functions. The exploit creates concerns about the migration of PC viruses to mobile, Apple's app vetting procedures, and the general way we protect our phones for attacks.
If you decided to fund your next car purchase by begging for money on a street corner and promising people that you would get a really sweet ride with the money, you would be treated like the tramp that you are. If you go on Kickstarter/Indiegogo or any other crowdfunded site, you are an entrepreneur who knows how to hustle and you are sticking it to the man (VC/Angel/Rich Uncle Larry).
It's getting hard to differentiate phones these days. Motorola is hoping to change the shopping experience in a small but significant way to make an impression. You can, too, by taking part in the design of your own Moto X phone.
You can bypass the dreaded phone store and go to MotoMaker to customize and order your own phone. Color, texture, and even a wooden back option for your phone.
The EPICT EPP-100 may look like a standard pico projector as it stands ready to display an image onto a screen or wall.
The Washington Post, Time, and CNN are not only forced to use Outbrain like the rest of us traffic desperate sites, but they have also been unceremoniously attacked by people who still find time to commit massacres between keystrokes. Sad state of journalism in this country grows worse.
