Samsung disabling local search from Google search bar in Galaxy S III

Google would disable local search from their search box in an update for Jelly Bean.
Samsung seems to have started disabling search from Google Search Box in S III.
Everyone else would have to follow.

All credit goes to Apple because they 'invented' universal search.

Next is what? Apple suing every manufacturer because they 'invented' touch screens?

its like they are 'jealous' why other phones are being sold, they just want people to use iPhone.

I read in many articles that Universal Search has already been removed in the Update released few days back. But even after that Update I am still having Universal Search Widget and it working fine too.

Well the update for S3 has been released in the US market by Sprint and AT&T from what I know. Not globally. And it might not be released globally considering Apple only has patent for it in the US market.

They do own patent for multi touch screens. They could possibly do that. ;P
