    To quote this web site:

    Sherlock 3 kicks rear as it is. What kind of plug-ins are you talking about?

    Like the way it lets you search ebay, and translate and access sites like that. I cant remember which site i had in mind, but i am looking for plugins for other cool sites.

    Internationalist

    Maybe some plug-ins that let non North American users access telephone directories, movie listings etc. Sherlock 3 is pointless for International English users.

    Watson

    I wouldn't mind having the Weather and TV searches that were in Watson. I used those a lot in the demo I had. Maybe I'll just go go back and buy Watson anyway. I like Sherlock, but it is slower in the searches for info than Watson was. I'm not complaining, just stating. I, too would like some more plug-ins.

    As much as I like Sherlock half of it is totally useless if you don't live in the states, I would like to see some more international options.

    I live in New Zealand so even though it is really cool to show off to PC users and make them go wow, it only does American stuff and if I want to go to a movie this is not at all helpful.

    Things that I relevant to me:

    Internet
    Pictures
    ebay
    dictionary
    translation
    Applecare

    irrelavant

    Stocks
    Movies
    Yellow Pages
    Flights


    if apple fixed up two fifths of Sherlock so that it would work for me I would be a very happy man. Until then, I'll just use the paper.

    We international users need plugins for it... Or it's just sort of pointless to have Sherlock

    well it's possible that apple just wanted to make sure sherlock worked for its majority of users (usa) and now will be working on things for other folks... let's hope at least

    does watson have options for international users?

    i'll agree, we need to be able to use plugins... i like to search the web with google, which would probably be a plug-in... maybe there's a different way to add these tho...
