How come iTunes doesn't have a keyboard shortcut to select the search box in the upper right hand corner? I just checked the official list of shortcuts, and they have things like "listen to the next album in a list" (Shift-Control-Alt-Right Arrow), but no way to do one of the most simple and common tasks like searching? I'm a keyboard guy. I like to avoid the mouse as much as possible. Unfortunately, with iTunes, I am forced to use the mouse way more than I should have to. I am not impressed for a company like Apple who claims to have a focus on usability (i.e., what if I couldn't use a mouse due to physical accessibility issues). In contrast, one thing that always impresses me with Microsoft products is that they have keyboard accelerators for every single little thing. Every app, every time.
