Also, the weightage for the frequency of the content gives unfair advantage for News sites.
There is no doubt that there are problems with the leading search engines, these problems are hard to solve, but they need to be solved to maintain the sanctity on the Internet.
Case in point: If you search by 'platform to post problems', 'problems to solve' you'll not see this platform in the top results and not even see any useful, actionable results. All you'll get is some article talking about why business should be solving problems by a major media.
To cut search engines some slack, it may be because of the platform's age and may be not enough back links for this context. But then again, it is the problem we're talking about here; search engines are not context aware and it might change in the future with improvements in Machine Learning.
If you search 'submit problems for startups to solve'; you'll come across the LinkedIn post sharing the content from the original in this platform in-spite of explicitly mentioning that the original is located here.
True, bookmarking UI/UX has been nearly unchanged from the dawn of the browsers with GUI; I guess it has to do with the philosophy of a bookmark i.e. as a digital analog to a physical bookmark in a book, it needs to be blatantly simple. I agree that the default bookmarking experience in the browsers hasn't scaled up well with the Internet, I do have decades of bookmarks distributed across several tools.
The problem you've stated also brings in attention about other problems which may have a role to play in this, namely 'Human memory, lack of thereof' & 'Getting things done at individual level'.
My current workflow to bookmark is of the following order,
1. If the entire content should be easily viewed, then store via pocket extension.
2. If a partial content should be easily viewed i.e. some snippet with link to entire source, then store in notes (Apple).
3. If the content seem useful in the future, but it is okay to forget it; then I store it in the browser bookmarks.
Ride hailing services like Uber, Ola are offering Free In-Car WiFi to their Taxis in India this works by sharing mobile data from the drivers smartphone via WiFi hotspot. Though this is inline with this need gap at a broader level, it still uses mobile data as a source for Internet and not fixed line broadband as found in houses and offices.
But this definitely is one of the few cases where WiFi sharing is being implemented at scale today. If you are a frequent user of their services in India, do you switch off your mobile data to the drivers WiFi? I tried once or twice during the launch, had some issues connecting and didn't bother with them in the future due to security concerns.
Security is one of the pain points which needs to be addressed in solving this need gap.
