A look inside Jaguar

Apple: “In Jaguar, Sherlock makes it simpler to comprehend that information once you’ve found it. Now Sherlock displays search results in an interface tuned for each channel, instead of launching your Web browser.”

As others, including the folks at TidBITS, have pointed out, the new Sherlock looks like a clone of Karelia’s Watson.

Update 2 p.m.: Some people have suggested that Sherlock 3 actually is Watson in new clothes. It isn’t. See the comments page for this post for a note from Robb Beal clarifying that “Sherlock 3 from Apple is not Watson in any respect. Karelia LLC continues to operate as an independent software development company.”
