Sweet. Google has added a new feature to its main search interface. Entering define before your search term will conduct your normal search as well as provide a definition of the term or terms.

It would be really neat if Google worked on WordNet and integrated its enhancements back in.

Examples: define Pakistan, define Google, define Dave, define 42, define RSS, define Radio—more evidence that Google is blacklisting Dave’s products: they didn’t even mention his software!!!, define apple, and define f*ck
