    Why the hell if I am searching on "email" do I get hits for pregnancy, ovulation tracking, battery indicators, xbox live account management, etc, etc, etc, et effing cetera?

    Change "email" above for any other search and it is still just as random.

    It seems you have to know exactly what you want before you start.

    I think Google needs to sort it out a bit.

    Well yes but my point is that it does not filter very well.

    If it's any consolation, the current Market search is pure science fiction compared to what it was like when Cupcake was all the rage.

    But yeah. Google is THE search company, sort it out. kthxb
