SDP: Search Engine Owners Can Harvest Ideas

It occurred to me to do an Internet search to see if anyone was marketing and selling hand-held Geiger Counters to food shoppers, using the fear of a breach at the Fukushima nuclear power plant as motivation.

Then it hit me -- those who operate Internet search engines are the first to learn about new ideas.  Why?  Because as soon a someone thinks of inventing or developing something like a Bluetooth-enabled Geiger Counter, he or she would perform a search to see if anyone else has already done that, thereby giving the idea to the search engine.
