In my release, when I put a search term at the top of the Dash, I get
"local" results as I expect, but at the bottom of the window, I also have
amazon.com results. Assuming this "feature" doesn't get yanked in the final
release, I think a screenshot of this is a good idea. I've also mentioned
it in Chapter 2.  Blogs I've been reading indicate a LOT of people are not
happy about the inclusion of Amazon.com results based on search results, so
I won't be entirely surprised if it disappears in the final release. But we
go with what we have for now.
