I have a table that has 186000 items in it and I want to be able to allow a user to type the name of the item he or she is looking for and have the textbox refine its search much like google now does as you type items in to search for with google.
What is the slickest way of doing that?

First you need to create an API that is in contact with your database, this api is going to retrun json objects, then you need to create an interface (a simple html page with JQuery functionality)
start here: http://jqueryui.com/demos/autocomplete/

On keup of the textbox you can do an ajax call to get the data. You can search fo calling ajax with jquery.
