What I wish existed

First of all, I wish TinEye worked better. Secondly, I want something like Google image finder that doesn't just find images based on text entry, but also images that resemble something you draw for it, and can also find web sites and stuff from inputted drawn entries. A place where you go and either search text, enter a JPEG or somesuch, or click "drawing search." The "drawing search" entry mode would let you draw with either the mouse or a graphics tablet (or your finger, on like an iPad) and search the image like you search text.

Say, for instance, you have a clear picture in your head and can't think of any words to search and find something associated with that picture. Like, an image of a painting, but you don't know the artist, the time period, or anything else about it. Just draw a rough sketch of it, hit "find," and this image-searcher would display a bunch of possibilities. Once you find the right one, it can then tell you the artist and the title, so on.

Another example is drawing a symbol you've seen, and finding out its name and meaning, if it's a known symbol.
