Google Introduces Search for Smell - Meet Google Nose!

You can now search and find smells with Google Nose, the latest revolutionary product from the Mountain View, California search behemoth.

See Google Nose in action below.

How did Google capture and catalog all these aromas from around the world? The Google Nose page says that those Google Street vehicles weren't just taking photos, they were collecting smells, too! So if you were chasing after a Google Street van and farted as it passed by you, your aroma might well be immortalized by Google Nose under the category "flatulence, burrito induced."

This is the biggest olfactory innovation since movie theaters tried to introduce Smell-O-Rama!

"Suit and Tie" - Justin Timberlake's New Single, Featuring Jay-Z

After a false start earlier this week, the new Justin Timberlake single, "Suit and Tie," is out, and you can hear it below. As someone remarked on Twitter a few minutes ago, the tune is sure to be played at every prom and wedding this spring and summer.

Smart move by JT in dropping this early in the new year to let it filter through the public consciousness so that everyone will be very familiar with it by spring.

We'll all look forward to his follow-up single, "Socks and Underwear." So what do you think of Justin Timberlake's new single, "Suit and Tie"? Weigh in below!

2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on CBS - Tonight! Oddball Costumes Galore...

If you like beautiful young women dressed in skimpy underwear with bizarre accessories, well, tonight's your night: the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will be aired on CBS here in the U.S. of A.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show model
"I look so HOT. And so silly. At the same time."
The actual show took place several weeks ago, and photos of the outfits were shown in many news outlets and online (such as the New York Daily News). Like those hoity-toity fashion shows in Paris, Milan, and New York, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show features a bevy of very attractive and ridiculously in-shape (and/or anorexic-looking) women wearing absurd outfits that no ordinary working girl would wear, or could possibly afford.

A big theme at this year's Victoria's Secret show is skimpy undergarments with butterfly-type wings, flower-covered appendages, and other stuff attached to the back. Huh? It doesn't seem all that attractive in the first place, to say nothing of being impractical. Who wants to get poked in the eye by a giant sequined insect wing when trying to get frisky with one's mate?

 Regardless, the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will have boffo TV ratings and will spark millions of tweets and Facebook posts, because it seems both men and women watch this show closely each year: women because they love putting these type of garments on, and men because they love, well, taking them off. Turn your TV or other device to CBS at 10 p.m. Eastern and watch a thousand butterflies bloom, or fly, or strut, or whatever.

Tomorrow's "iCarly" to Feature Animated Carly, Sam, Freddie

iCarly animated characters
The "iCarly" gang gets animated Saturday night.

The "iCarly" gang gets animated in the Nov. 10th episode, "iBust a Thief." The episode features a short cartoon called "Hungry Sam," in which the character's appetite gets the best of her in a bizarrely unexpected way.

In the episode, Sam's laptop gets stolen, and she leaves no stone (or anything else) unturned until she finds out who took it. It's Sam at her obsessive, tunnel-visioned best (or worst, rather).

You'll find a preview of tomorrow night's "iCarly" here.  

"iBust a Thief" premieres Nov. 10th at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Nickelodeon.
