When you type your search into the google/bing search
engine on the side a "cloud ui" would open showing
different associated web searches added to that word.
These search texts would be shortened with text that is
not in any of the other clouds.
Example: Say I have an idea to put up on halfbakery
app that tracks who took the keys to the library, or who
has which of the 7 iphones in the company. Its a real
simple app and has a few fast ways for you to say you
took the keys and gave them back. I want to search the
web (ok, I want to google) for tracking of ... what? I
write: TRACKING ONLINE. WHO HAS IT. WHO TOOK IT
LAST. WHO TOOK THE KEYS. But have no chance of
finding the word I want.
If instead, I would have a cloud next to the search, with
DIFFERENT fields of search, NOT IN THE FIRST RESULT
PAGE, so that I can go to OTHER RESULTS, that would be
In this example: The cloud, sorted by frequency of search,
would include: stolen, Himalaya, mud, Lincoln,
management, task, inventory, online
When hovering on ONLINE for example, the other words
connected with it, like management and inventory would
move around it
HOW TO: The results would be from later pages with
bigger diff from current page results, (starting with lower
down on this page itself), saved known search terms with
the words from my search, and from recursive searches.

||This sounds a lot like existing search-engine suggestions, but with more dimensions. Is that the right sort of idea?
||Does this all turn to shit when you clear your browser
||Oh, and I finally found the term. It's "Asset Tracking",
and of course I found that there are 100 people who
thought of and even made easy to use smartphone or
web apps for that ...
||Tried that Quintra link with "yellow moon oblique hamburger" and it didn't find anything relevant...if it can't handle a simple search like that, it's back to square one guys..
||And they might choose to come up with a better label for the second option than "Search for kids"...
||It looks like Google hasn't found your annotation yet,
