The Dark Web is a term that refers specifically to a collection of websites that are publicly visible, but hide the IP addresses of the servers that run them. Thus they can be visited by any web user, but it is very difficult to work out who is behind the sites. And you cannot find these sites using search engines.

Pinterest – which recently announced that it now has over 100 million monthly active users – is rolling out a new search tool that will allow you search for stuff that the company says “you don’t have the words to describe.” The tool will be available on both mobile as well as the Web.

“Sometimes you spot something you really love on Pinterest, but you don’t know how to find it in real life, or what it’s even called,” the company said in a blog post. “There’s that perfect lamp hiding in a Pin of someone’s living room, or maybe a random street style shot with the exact shoes you’re looking for.”

The experience is so different from the regular service, I am stunned. Fast-loading is the first thing, so be careful what you click—or turn off autoplay. Videos on Facebook feel like a moped racing a Lamborghini compared to YT Red.

I didn’t sign up for YouTube Red, which will be true for many other new subscribers. I have a free trial to Google Play Music that ends November 24th. If you subscribe to either service, Google gives you the other, too.
