    Can someone explain how the shopping lens is supposed to work

    I've heard that the dash links directly to sites such as Amazon.com. Great. So I open the dash and type in "a song of ice and fire" hoping to find GRR Martens books- Nope. Sorry there is nothing that matches your search. Okay, maybe I'm setting my sights too low, lets try Tom Clancy instead. Nothing.

    Maybe I should try a film with a sound track instead:

    titanic- I get four completely random results
    Barby: titan
    Micro titanic- future EP
    Anna Shannon - Titanic centenary
    The bullet monks.

    Am I missing something here?

    Hmm, can't reproduce your results.

    Getting direct hits on them all.

    Which version of Ubuntu are you using, not that I believe it should make a difference, but just for clarity.

    Neither do I live in the US, but don't think that should be an issue.

    I'll boot up 12.10 later, see what results I get.

    Slightly different results, but still relevant (was on 13.04 earlier, but booted into 12.10 now). The first link is as per screenshot.
