The realtime search was quite handy I'm sad to see it gone.

I actually really liked Google's Realtime Search. It was nice to be able to turn it on and search for breaking news, and then see what people were saying. Hope it comes back with Twitter integration.

Does this mean no more Google Instant?  I sure hope so, because I hate having to turn off Instant on new machines and I hate having to Google something on someones computer that has it on.

Not sure why your hating on Google Instant search so much, instead of turning it off, just don't look at the screen, type out your search, then look at the screen. The end result will be *EXACTLY THE SAME*.

Some people like to complain about the dumbest things, for the sake of complaining.

I'm curious as to why they wouldn't just tap into the Twitter Streaming API.  It's effectively unlimited and offers some rather simple filtering functionality.
