Just use "or" instead of "and" and you'll get what you need.

You are scanning the letters in the string.
You first need to split your input into lines, in order to scan over strings 
in a list of strings. Use :

var1 = "this is a test\nand another test"
[line for line in var1.splitlines() if line.find('t') != -1]

Same as above. Use:

for line in iWordsMatch(data.splitlines(), "microsoft", "windows")

Why Microsoft and Windows ? I am very pleased to see that Microsoft Windows is 
now used instead of foo bar.
