I wanted to elaborate a bit. In looking more closely Google is taking the term I'm actually searching for and changing it to what it thinks I may want. It's not asking me if this is what I want them to do, it's literally taking Brand Widget Red and instead returning Brand Widet Red and then asking me if I want to instead search for the original term Brand Widget Red!
So instead of showing me the results I asked for it's showing me the results I didn't ask for which have no relevance to what I want - they leave the original search term in the search box but show me a different set of results!? I can then click the text with the terms next to "Search instead for the original terms" and I can get what I was looking for?
If this is an improvement I'd like to go back to google 2009 which worked just fine for 99.9% of my searches and didn't take actual search terms I enter and change it to meaningless rubbish.
