Watch Marissa Mayer speak about all the 3 announcements. http://www.casttv.com/search/searchology%202009/1. According to her, 40% of the user query each day are repeated. I agree with her and it makes sense, if you take a real world scenario.
Eg: Say I want to purchase or get information about buying links! Majority of my searches for the day would be related to this and the new search option will make it simpler for me to make a decision.
