Archer posted a link to Ms. Dewey in the comments and I decided to give it a more in depth trial after taking the initial look. Have you met Ms. Dewey reminds me a lot of a line in one of my favorite tv series called How I met your mother which is a way to approach women for Barney and Ted in the series.
Well, Ms. Dewey is basically a search engine with a twist. Ms. Dewey is there to, talking to you, making fun out of you and being mean if you ask here some impolite questions. I don't want to repeat what I have written because it is not that appropriate but you probably get it anyway.
You basically ask questions and wait for an answer from Ms. Dewey which seems to have something to say most of the time and will let you know if she does not understand the question at all. Search results are displayed in the same place on the right side of the Dewey character. They display three results at most but it is possible to scroll to access more of them.
I'm not really sure about the accuracy of the results and I think it is much easier to use Google or any other search engine because frankly, after a time, Ms. Dewey is really getting on my nerves. Still, it is a nice experiment and could show how things will be in the future..
