10.4: Move saved searches to the iDisk Network
Tiger only hintI kind of stumbled accross this by accident. You can move your Saved Searches folders from the directory ~/Library/Saved Searches to your Desktop (which I think is pretty obvious); but I hadn't really thought about dragging them to my iDisk ... but you can.

Of course, you're only synching the query terms from the .savedsearch file that is the "smart folder," but the nice part is that complicated queries dont't have to re-created repeatedly (along with all the usual benefits of synchronization).

Yes, indeed. You can drag these saved searches (not the folder necessarily) anywhere you like. I keep my iPod saved searches on my iPod - no point having them on the hard disk when the iPod is disconnected.

More interestingly, the whatever.savedSearch item is actually an XML file describing the search so you could modify it manually, or create new ones from scratch.
