Techmeme Search finds "items", i.e. blog posts, news stories and tweets, that have appeared as headlines on Techmeme.
Items listed only in the "More" areas are excluded from results.
By default, only the title and first few sentences are searched. Unchecking "Search title & summary only" extends the search to the full body text.
Quoted phrases, wildcards, and standard search operators like + (plus), - (minus), AND, OR, NOT, and parenthesis are all supported.
Narrowing searches based on url, author, date, and other attributes is also possible. For instance, the query [ Streisand sourcename:Techdirt ] restricts searches for "Streisand" to items from the blog "Techdirt".
Examples of other operators follow:
App stores, portals and discovery

— The problem with Amazon is not that it doesn't make a profit, but that you don't actually know what the profits are. — On the face of it, this sounds like an absurd statement - it doesn't make any profits. After all, look at this chart - massive revenue growth, zero profit.
— Apple's results yesterday were actually pretty boring. But one of the more interesting things is the way that the iPad is now starting to become just as cyclical as the iPhone. — You can see this at a high level in this chart, which shows unit sales for Apple products since the iPhone launched back in 2007.
On market share
— For the last couple of years, the standard way to look at the progress of the ‘platform war’ between Apple, Google and the now near-vanquished Nokia and RIM was ‘smartphone market share’: each platform's share of the share of the phone units sold each quarter that could be defined as ‘smart’.
Who's who in agile teams? — As I was learning scrum one of the questions that kept coming to mind was, “how do development managers and scrum masters share responsibilities in the team?” In this post I'll explore the answer to this question.
