What's your mindset?

Yahoo! is beta testing a new way of searching. In addition to entering keywords, you can choose your mindset by sliding a bar with "Shopping" on one end and "Researching" on another.

Say you're using your tax refund to buy a new TV and want to learn more about HDTV. You might start your research by sliding the bar toward "Researching" to learn what HDTV is. Once you're comfortable with the concept of HDTV, you can slide the bar to "Shopping" and resubmit your search to start looking for a good deal.
