the above article is about Steve Jobs' ascertion that browse/sort is old hat
and the future is search.
I'd like to get other people's thoughts on this.
I do think that sorting might be old hat, but there are other forms of
browse, or maybe I'm limiting my definition of search a bit.
What comes to mind for me is that I like GMail's labels, but I seldom
search. I browse based on those labels.
Another example is the 40GB of music I have. I seldom search ... I browse. I
do sort my lists by album and artist, but I seldom use the text field to
enter data, click a button and hope for a sub-set of info.
Search comes up a lot in what I do as someone who has been working in ECM
for a long time now, so I'm curious as to what other people think about the
IxD implications on this subject.
