I know this has been beaten to death before, but I was looking on my iPhone, and realized that the search prompt is simple, elegant and gets the point across.

I think it's design could be carried over well in some fashion to the Instant Activate box, and negate the need for the button.

Edit: Changed my original verbiage (quicksearch) to instant activate. I think it'll always be quicksearch to me, since it searches and it's, ummm, quick. Click image for larger version - Name: searchbox.png, Views: 50, Size: 4.14 KB
