It is interesting to examine the claim that the Amazon search should be included because it would provide interesting and relevant things - unlike something like Google, Amazon's search engine has a single goal in life, to sell things. Whether users like the integration or not, even the more fundamental question seems to want answering: I cannot think of a time when I've been searching for stuff, locally or online, and thought, "You know what, I wish Amazon results were integrated into this - that'd be great!".
Please tell me you are joking. Google exists only to sell your eyeballs and whatever it can figure out about you.
I am now not sure that is implied by the message at all. In which case you would be mistaken about me knowing damn well what it meant. I have no idea what other interpretation of the Google reference would make sense.
Either way, your hostility is unwarranted and adds nothing to the discussion.
Google, as a search engine, is a generic "find the most relevant thing based on the keywords I provide". Amazon, as a search engine, is closer to "find the things I would be most likely to buy based on the keywords I provide". The two functions are entirely different.
I didn't make any comment about it being "less evil" (was that intended to be a quote?); I was making a comment about the intended function of the service. I could have substituted in DDG or Yahoo! or Bing and the point would be the same; equally, it makes as much sense to provide Amazon-based results to me as it would do to provide results from Target or Walmart.
