I was looking for movie trailers on Apple.com today and noticed they have a search suggestion popup underneath the search box. Was this there before?

The suggestions include:
Movie Trailers
Products
Apple Store products
Support
Downloads
iTunes Store

An interesting note about the suggestions is that you can search for movies on Itunes directly from the Search box on Apple.com. This doesn't work for Music artists though. Maybe that will come later. I only tried about 5 bands and all of them came up with no suggestion.

A few screen shots of the suggestions are below.

I came across 2 artists that popped up in the Itunes suggestion: Snow Patrol, Fallout Boy. So they do appear to have some Music artists in the suggestions.

Yeah, your right Inferno. It is more of a search result rather than a suggestion.
