I stopped using Sherlock when...
Authored by: makeinu on May 06, '06 09:22:25AM

it ceased to be a decent meta-search engine. I'm reasonably certain that I'm not the only person in the world who believes that Google is not the be-all and end-all of search engines, and Sherlock, before it became a rehash of Watson, used to be a great way to search multiple engines simultaneously. It certainly was much easier than loading a dozen or more web search pages in a browser.

Defacing Sherlock in the way they did is the thing that I resent most from One Infinite Loop. If it ain't broke, then don't fix it. Honestly, if I'd have wanted to use Watson, then I'd have paid the shareware fee for it, and used it. The fact that it was absent from my hard drive speaks volumes about it's usefulness to me: none.
