For those unfamiliar, SearchMe is a relatively new search engine that allows you to preview search results while searching, as opposed to clicking through to the destination page. So for instance, if you searched "mike markson" on their engine, you would see a smaller version of Marksonland show up as a result within the SearchMe environment. If Marksonland isn't the page you are looking for, you "flip" through the other pages like you would would pages in a book - seeing each one.
All that is well and good, but up until now I haven't gotten a lot of value out of the site. On my laptop screen, the visual preview of the page doesn't do me much good. In the SearchMe environment, the page preview is too small for me to see my search term or the the context with which it is used.
However, on the iPhone it makes perfect sense. The touch screen on the iPhone allows users to expand the browser to zoom in on a page. So even though the iPhone screen is much smaller than my laptop, the zoom capability makes it a much more suited environment for visual style search like SearchMe's.
Sometimes taking advantage of a slight change in environment can make all the difference in the world.
Here's a demo of SearchMe on iPhone if you are interested:
