Google60: Search The Web Mad Men-Style

Grab yourself a cocktail and say goodbye to your productivity with this brilliant Google60 parody that lets you use the search tool as if you only had access to a monstrous IBM System/360 mainframe. Spoiler alert: you'll probably be pulling your hair out after five minutes.

Announced in 1964, the S/360 would have been the cutting edge of technology available to the suits at Sterling Cooper and Google60 recreates its interface complete with punch cards, paper printouts instead of a display, a reel-to-reel tape storage system and authentic sound effects that will make you miss even your Commodore 64. Oh, and a word to the wise, unless you've got the morning free you'll want to avoid image searches at all cost.
