Yahoo’s 'Accordion' Interface: A Closer Look

Yahoo has rolled out some search improvements, including an "Accordion" box at the top of some search results that groups relevant items into sections such as Stories, Images, Videos, and Tweets. Not bad! I don't, however, understand why the first results in the Accordion box are "Latest on:" links with only the vaguest association to the thing you searched for-I got the same list of breaking search terms for anyone who was in the news (such as Barack Obama and Sarah Palin), and the same list of musicians for any pop artist from the past sixty years...
