    Does the firmware Search Button only go to Bing? I don't mind this on the home screen, but really annoying inside of a program when what I want is it to act like Windows 8 and just search within the document I have open.

    Unfortunately, yes. Its not context-sensitive (for the time being, hopefully MS follows through in the next GDR), so any press inside of an app will just pull you to the bing search page.

    Why Windows 8 acts one way and Windows 8 phone another is what makes it so annoying.
