    I was reading an interesting article as to whether the SE’s are becoming more human-like when someone searches for a particular query. Normally, we expect a direct link to a website when we search online for something, correct?

    Ok then, type in “What is the height of the Empire State Building” and see what is the first result. It’s a reply and not a direct link, interesting!

    BTW, if you like to read the article here it is.

    They’ve been into direct answers for some time now though what gets answered directly seems to change from time to time. Try searching:

    time in dublin?

    weather in new york?

    10 Euro in AUD?

    5 lbs in kilos

    12 x 9

    96F in celsius
