Here is an interesting idea, a command line interface for the web.
http://www.yubnub.org/ has a huge list of commands, a list of which can be viewed by typing “ls” as the prompt. These range from everything from a Google search to making a Paypal payment.
There’s an article on NewsForge (http://internet.newsforge.com/internet/06/02/13/2032208.shtml) about it or just try it out for yourself and see what you think.

A few example commands:

Starts up a random online game for you to play.

loto (state)
search for state lotto results

g Linux
Performs a Google search of Linux

Wp Linux
Performs a Wiki search of Linux

I have been using YubNub for awhile and it is a pretty kool concept. Love the command line feel of it.
