    As we have the Dashboard, will Sherlock become obsolete by it?

    Sher-what? :p
    Do you use that?
    Nice in concept, pretty bad in execution, has been marginalized since os 8!
    Think most of the widgets seem to replace it's best functions, so we'll see. No mention of it on the tiger page, so maybe Sherlock has been murdered himelf!

    i dont see why i would use sherlock anymore when i can get the same tolls on my screen at the press of a buttons and they work in real time.

    yes dashboard will make sherlock redundant. seeing that dashboard is far more versatile.

    That looks nice, but it's not what BornAgainMac was talking about. Sherlock lets you look up movie times for theaters in your area, as well as watch previews all within the app. Unless I'm mistaken, the widget you linked to just plays Quicktime files.
