  1. Ehh. The number one thing I used Watson for was movie listings. Now that Watson’s kaput, I use Sherlock for the same thing. If Sherlock’s movie channel stops working, I’ll need something else, but it doesn’t look like this app provides it.

  2. I am irritated by the way that Apple has let Sherlock languish, now that widgets are here. I still run Panther on my work computer, so I need to use the Phone Book in Sherlock, but it hasn’t worked for a few months now.

    I paid for and used Watson when it came out. It was a really good app. The only irritating part was that it wanted to update almost everytime that I started it up. I just wanted quick info, but I would have to wait for an update and then close and restart Watson to get my info.

  3. Ampar: “At first glance, I thought this story had something to do with raising bail money for a very tall comedian.”

    LOL – since he is quite an Apple fan, and is routinely seen at Macworld Expo’s and the like, I was thinking the same thing…
