Guided Selections in the iTunes Music Store

Neat how the iTunes music store lets you — This is fas­ci­nat­ing. Guid­ed selec­tions for artists or gen­res in the iTunes Music Store.

The problem with Google

I do love me Google. A lot. I use it exclu­sive­ly, and when­ev­er I present to the hoi pol­loi on “Search­ing teh Intar­webs” I use Google to do it. But there is one thing they need to fix, between adding more one box­es and putting lit­tle arrows at the end of my cus­tomized search results. […]
