Re: Ubuntu 12.10 Beta 2 Released with New Features


How about dividing the list of "lenses" into two categories -- Offline
and Online (with an explanation that offline only searches your
computer, while online gets it's results from the Internet). And list
the actual names for each lens after it in parenthesis and/or italics 

something like:

Music Lens (unity-music-lens) Searches through your music files for the
item, and displays the results in the Dash.

Shopping Lens (unity-shopping-lens) Retrieves search results from online
stores (currently only Amazon) and displays them in the Dash. *Warning,
the results may not be filtered for inappropriate content.*

(Obviously I'm paraphrasing what could be wrote in--not specifying how
it should be worded.)

Then further down, you can add the information on disabling the online
content with the screenshot that is in the blog post. And you could add
that if the user wants to remove the lens completely it's apt-get remove

Again, this is only a suggestion--not my opinion on what you should

Have a great day:)
