For those disappointed in the drop in local search functionality on the Galaxy Nexus to work around Apples patents: Don't forget that on a real OS like Android, 3rd party apps can bring this back in just a few taps in the play store.

Let's watch Apple try to sue 100s of individual app developers. #boycottapple

The app doesn't even require Google... Any developer can write and app to search my local music, contacts, videos etc...

Ugh... Apple can't possibly get more sleezy.  #boycottapple
 
A copy of Apple's takedown notice, which is being sent to retailers who stock the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or the Galaxy Nexus. Have a look at the document, and see what a deal with the devil looks like.

So, Google has a work-around for the Galaxy Nexus ban that will remove local search results from the search bar. While it is totally insane that they have to do this (Apple's unified search patent is clearly invalid as it is predated by things like Google Desktop), the good news is that this is functionality that can be re-enabled (if you actually use it) in about 5 seconds through a third party app. Unlike the idiot OS, aka "i"OS, Android OS actually uses real fileystems that are organized in a straightforward way and are totally and trivially indexable. Android has intents for displaying contacts, music collections etc....

I can't wait for Apple to start suing every 3rd party search app developer. That will be fun to watch.... #boycottapple
