Speed up iTunes search speed
Authored by: whit_g on Oct 10, '05 11:34:19AM

Very effective on my machine (PB G4 1.25)! This is exactly what I was looking for. I use that feature every day and am pissed off every time I use it that Apple didn't include the option, even a hidden option, to delay Spotlight-type searches until you stop typing for X tenths of a second. Who on earth is going to search for, say, the letter A? Ridiculous. It amazes me that Apple threw so much weight and press behind Spotlight and didn't even polish it up properly before releasing it.

I too have a Powerbook G4 1.25GHz, and try as I might can't reproduce the problem you (both) are describing. Whether I type fast or slow, one letter at a time or a whole word, browsing panel open or not, I have the results within less than half a second after I've entered the text.

So I don't think that Apple didn't polish Spotlight before shipping it, I just think that there may be something else interfering with your system that's keeping it from running at top speed.
