Finding Stuff on Google
I'm experiencing the same issues highlighted above, trying to search for speakers of an exact diameter is problematic at best.
Searching of inches in it's shorthand format (which is most widely used all over the internet) should be supported by Google and would not be hard for developers to implement.
From a fellow software engineers perspective it only requires that the indexing algorithm picks up on numbers with a trailing quotation mark (so it indexes inches properly), and extra search logic so that if someone puts in a search term that is a number with a trailing quotation mark (where they haven't started a verbatim block using a quote beforehand) it recognises that as an inch symbol.
