NewsFlash: iPad Kindle app now has search

After much wait, Version 2.2 of the Kindle app for iPad is available. Search, my favorite, is now available in the iPad version. It's been in the iPhone version a while now. Also included in the update is a dictionary with over 250,000 words. Simply highlight a word, and the definition appears at the bottom of the screen. You are then able to see the full definition of the word or look up the word in google or wikipedia. I found it annoying however that once I returned to the Kindle app after using google to lookup a highlighted word, it didn't return me to the correct location in the book.
