And one other area where I concede that Spotlight needs to do more is with Documents in the Cloud. Save a document to iCloud, and it's largely invisible to you if you forget which app you created it in. Spotlight should certainly incorporate your iCloud-stored documents in its search results.
Beyond that, though, leave my search boxes alone. I'll turn to Google when I need to search everything, and I'd like my Mac and iPhone to just search themselves unless instructed otherwise.--Lex Friedman
