9. Google Mobile Brain Search

Year: 2009

Google's new Mobile App feature could purportedly read your brainwaves and index brain content to "make it searchable" for users. The app instructed users to place their smartphone on their foreheads, think of a query, and click the "Try Now" option, which would bring up a "Brain indexing" status page and "search me" button that redirected them to fake search results. Lame! Google can't really read your mind...*puts on foil hat*.
