As you know Google has made some changes to the Keyword planner tool. Well, i just got this email from Domcop. Google has recently started showing ranged values for the search volume in the Google Keyword Planner - e.g. (100K to 1M) - thereby rendering it useless for anyone serious about keyword research. I personally feel that Google will eventually stop showing these ranges to all users who do not spend at least $XXX every year at Adwords. Here is a free browser addon alternative called Keywords Everywhere that lets you get the search volume & cpc for unlimited number of keywords. You can install the chrome extension here and the firefox addon here. I installed it on firefox and it's working well. Just thought id pass it on..
