Change Your Mindset

Susan Kuchinskas reports in InternetNews a new Yahoo search tool called Mindset. After returning the search hit list, it presents a slider bar that allows a person to "tune" their search between "shopping" at one pole to "researching" at another.

Now imagine a search appliance that looks like a sound mixer with 300 sliders. I could then "name" my favorite configurations and save them. I would then like my appliance to continuously run my favorite configuration and alert me when the top search hit result changes. (Now if I could just get someone to pay me to sit around and search all day. . .)

It's a great idea, but adding too many choices may be confusing. Also, filters may remove results that may have been helpful.
