Tiger\'s Spotlight search

Apple's , announced as a feature of Mac OS X Tiger, works contextually within Apple applications as well as third-party ones via a new SDK and will automatically mine each file on-the-fly to make them instantly searchable by keyword, but also resembles older Mac OS 8 technology, according to eWEEK: "In some respects, Spotlight resembles a capability originally planned for Mac OS 8 under the name "Live Folders." Like that earlier Apple project, it lets users create "smart folders" based on a query against a metadata index of all the mounted drives on a Tiger system."
