  • Files is for searching mounted volumes for files. It is the only channel that does not require Internet access to use.

  • Internet is for searching the Internet for general information.

  • People is for searching the Internet for the e-mail addresses and other contact information of people you know.

  • Shopping is for searching online stores for items you may want to purchase.

  • News is for searching news and information sites for news articles.

  • Apple is for searching Apple computer for product and technical information.

  • Reference is for searching reference libraries for information.

  • My Channel is an empty channel you can use to organize your own search sites.
