Something Smells Funny

Next time someone says that your site stinks, the person might mean it literally. At least if your site is DigiScent-enabled. The system revolves around a computer peripheral called an iSmell Personal Scent Synthesizer. This device is packed with scent cartridges that are cracked open according to the commands sent from a Web site.
