think secret has the info
What I want more than google, is a decent white pages. Theres more maps to places than just buisnesses.
If you read the article, it says they will also have White Pages along with the Google search.
I'm really glad Google will finally be added to sherlock because I think the other search engines it uses are sub-par. But what I would like even more is an option to actually purchase plane tickets rather than just checking flight times.
i don't think that a search channel is at all necessary. if i'm going to launch sherlock and do a google search, then load that result in my browser, it seems like i'm adding an unnecessary step. with the movie listings, yellow pages, dictionary, translation, etc. i can get all of the info i need without a browser, but a search function will require a browser in the end. package tracking is a good idea. it would be incredible if a 3rd party developer could make a channel that would access the most popular types of web forums (vBulletin, YaBBSe, etc.) and allow you to peruse forums without a browser. if only i could program...
I would like to see weather, public transport timetables, world times and currency converter channels implemented into Sherlock. At the moment, I rarely open the programme. Maybe only for the dictionary or to search Apple's knowledge base.
Apple posted a Sherlock channel SDK. So theoretically a gifted programmer could develop all those channels.
i just had a crazy idea. by subscribing to the apple developer channel, you get an html rendering item for sherlock 3. i thought that this was pretty cool, then i remembered that this is probably just the same thing that apple uses to render ebay lists and the applecare database. wouldn't it make sense for a future version of sherlock to be a help viewer, since all the help viewer is is an html renderer? and didn't apple hire dave hyatt (the brain behind chimera) to work on their "help viewer"? i know that sherlock is supposed to be an "un-browser", and perhaps it's all coincidental. maybe i'm reading too much into this.
p.s. after doing a little digging, i found a few other sherlock 3 channels (other than the 3 that were just posted on versiontracker and of course, massinova)
special thanks to slashdot posters for those goodies.
I find most of my info through Google, I'm glad it's being added... don't fret little Jaguar I will have you in my hands soon....
