comment Why is Google's “I'm Feeling Lucky” button still next to the search bar?
I always assumed it was mainly for nostalgia, to preserve an emotional attachment with long time users.

comment Why do Microwave oven UIs fail?
@DannyVarod Exact times are unnecessary. If I want 20 seconds, I'd rather just hit go and stand there for 20 seconds, than fiddle with some UI for 15 seconds to get the time precisely right.

Asking for a postcode could be an alternative, although it's not as user friendly as asking for the suburb or locality. Also, postcodes do not have a one-to-one relationship with suburb names (e.g. 2570 belongs to twenty-two towns and suburbs around Camden, New South Wales).

Nicely illustrated. It seems so obvious now that pulling the search box and results out of the form is a very clear way to do it. Got any links to a Javascript widget that might implement this already?
