    I can't seem to find anyway to do a search on the Playbook. I don't mean a search inside the browser, but a search for stuff on the playbook. Is this possible?

    Yes, like the ability to search through music, apps, documents, etc.

    The capability is in the QNX OS to search file names, but I don't know if the developers have access to the basic os utilities. I was shelled into the PlayBook using the developer mode and the find command worked properly. I noticed grep was there as well, so you could also search for text within text files.

    As F2 noted above, in each application there is now a find function, but it only looks for file names the application supports.

    Try "Search Files" from Quite Simple. Good basic file system search app.
