What's funny is that earlier, as I was about to type a haughty critique of why that spotlight screenshot "must" be faked, as I typed it I kept having to stop and back up and reword several times, each time running into the stumbling block of my descriptions actually indicating that it would
work and work well.
I was like:
"That's silly, oh look, 18 System preferences have a "d" in them, how useful. Now I type in an "i" and a bunch wink out, showing fewer...and I type "s" and (oh shit!) (go back and rewrite...this isn't proving my point!)"
Yup, in that context I can see it being useful.
I was just glad that the literal spotlights weren't solely what searchlight was about.
