Geeks With Blogs
urig Tidbits from a .net life
I've been giving Google Reader a spin and I'm finding it very easy to get used to reading my RSS feeds through it. They've done an excellent job with the UI, as usual.

But then I needed to find an old blog entry from Oren Eini's blog (a book recommendation for a fantasy trilogy of all things) and I've discovered that Google Reader is missing something very important. Something that Google is almost synonymous with - a search box.

What and odd surprise - there is no search feature (that I could find) in the Google Reader. That's like finding out that your brand new Victorinox swiss-army knife doesn't have any knife blades. Or that Nike Town doesn't sell sports shoes.

It's definitely a WTF moment and the only excuse I can come up with for this, is that the Reader is still in the Google Labs and maybe somebody took the search feature off to do some work on it (?!).
