Yeah, Why Doesn’t Google Reader Have Search?

Steve makes a really good point. Why doesn’t Google Reader have a search feature? I too often read something that I later want to use. Right now that means copious amounts of saving to del.icio.us (and thus, to this blog). It would be much easier to search.
Actually, I’ll do you one better. What I’d really prefer is integrated Reader search results in the general Google results. For instance, I’d search for “Drupal” (since I spend a lot of time on it) and intermixed with general results would be specially marked results that came from sites I subscribe to. If I wanted to make it really useful, I’d even give those results a boost in ranking.
I’m essentially feeding Google data about what sites I enjoy when I subscribe to them in Reader. There’d be a lot of additional value created in connecting that to general search results.
