    I went to Settings>Search>Searchable Items> and have all of them checked. But yet when I try and search "human" like in the commercial all i get is web search results....shouldnt this be working exactly like the commercial? Am I missing something....

    Thanks Dave

    Are you searching by using the magnifying glass button on your phone, or by using the google search bar widget?

    Do a search for Mc Donald's - I got a web search, Maps Information - including the phone number for the closest one to me as well as Youtube links. The next thing is to try a song you know is on the droid. I will try that as well. Post your findings.

    I have some music on the droid from the black eyed peas. I did a search, and they came up, as well as Youtube and web searches

    From the main screen

    Menu>Settings>Search

    Select Searchable items

    Select the items you want returned in your search.
