It’s hard to be as big as Google and still be fun. One bit of the search engine’s late-’90s whimsy that has survived to this day is the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button, which instantly takes users to the first search result for a query, with no intervening pages or ads.

Google’s new search mantra: “Did you know?”

Google CEO Eric Schmidt said that the future of search was blazing-fast, “autonomous” searching that constantly provides users with results. He made the comments at a keynote speech at the German IFA home electronics event in Berlin Tuesday.
