As I can tell they are replacing Sherlock with Dashboard since they really have not touched Sherlock for ever now. What I don't see is any kind of movie times viewer like they have in Sherlock.

Do you think Apple will add one before Tiger is out?

I use the movie times Sherlock all the time! I would hate to lose it. So for developers here... if Apple doesn't include one I think you need to step up to the plate. I think if it's a top quality Dashboard why not charge for it?

Also viewing the Demo of Dashboard on Apples site. I see that they don't include the map view with the new YellowPages. That is a shame also because I use that all the time also. I'm not sure what they are doing by taking away features that everyone uses all the time?

My thoughts.

Apple's not removing anything, and Sherlock isn't necessarily being replaced by Dashboard.

And the things you mention, such as the lack of maps, is just specific to one that one widget. Anyone can put together a widget with YellowPages directions and a map. That's the nice thing about Dashboard.

Is Sherlock included in the latest Tiger builds?
