[Q] niggling, or is my search annoying?

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8010 Wifi.
Terrific.
Now a new version is out (2014) God only knows why laziness precluded giving it a slightly different name.
Now this may be my short coming; but when I do a browser search for said machine (the original) I get nothing but tons of results on the new 2014 version.
I tried doing searches and putting in "NOT" 2014 or - (minus) 2014 but to no avail.

So my question is how do I now find what Google doesn't seem to want me to find? Am I failing at my searches because I'm lame or are searches now rigged to only give me the latest and (ahem) greatest?

Thanks.

The new one has a different model number so just searching with N8010 should be specific enough.
