Google A Day

Each day, Google asks a question, ex: If you traveled from where the Civil War began to where Robert E. Lee surrendered, what is the fewest miles you could travel? You then use Google to search for the answer in the quickest amount of time. Its set up as a game so that you can compete with others.

Another really neat feature is that a wormhole is in place so that the search results won't include other player's tweets or blog post or forums about how they just answered A Google a Day's question.
