Well said (I don't care about the Universal Search myself, but it is missing). No applications is a killer for me. Limited is being too kind. Not to have Amazon and some global news organizations lined up for launch was not a great plan. I'm sure the CBC app is nice, but CNN, BBC, FoxNews, etc. would be nicer. Citrix too...
