Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a bunch of subscriptions I added to Google Reader. When I go to the homescreen, I see many of these articles. One such article's title is "Rumored Houston Retail Store Grand Opening Sparks Speculation of iPad 3 Launch on March 16" from the Mac Rumors RSS feed.

When I type in Houston into the search box of Google Reader and press search ("all items" is checked), I don't get this result which I just saw on the homepage.

Am I using the search feature the wrong way? What's going on here?

My feeds are organized into folders if that makes any difference.

From my experience, GReader's search is a strange beast: it doesn't consider word forms (plurals for nouns & tenses for verbs) and doesn't understand Boolean parameters. –  dnbrv Mar 1 '12 at 21:54
