Regarding our post on Watson as one of those great apps that doesn’t get used any more, many readers pointed out they don’t use Sherlock much anymore either. What does that say about how many applications we have on our desktops?
“Apples own Sherlock seem’s to be of less use these days since searching in Safari is faster one less app to open and if you add AcidSearch it get’s even better. and the system search as well!
Sherlock needs some refreshing perhaps some P2P plugins/iTunes ..to give it a new life. and maybe better intergration with Safari/iLife Apps.”
Reader “buckley” took issue with the fracas over Apple’s pricing scheme in the UK. It’s about 20-percent higher there but no one knows why.
“It seems that every site reporting this makes the same mistake. This complaint is nothing to do with the fact that the prices are cheaper in the France and Germany. Do you really think everything in the EU is the same price?!
The reason for the complaint, is that UK users cannot take advantage of the cheaper prices in France and Germany because iTunes requires a Credit Card Billing Address in France or Germany. One of the fundamental principles of the EU is free market trade across the borders of the EU. For example I can order the same CD from Amazon in France, Germany or the UK despite differences in price.
I guess the problem is that these EU rules never really considered the impact of new technnologies such as Apple’s iTMS.”
Finally, someone likes Jack’s (Jack D. Miller) thinking regarding Apple’s ability and need to continue to innovate or die. We couldn’t agree more. Or less. Sometimes. We need to be as definitive as reader “steven.”
Reader “sergio” almost agreed with Jack. Mostly. Sometimes.
Adobe introduced Photoshop Elements 3.0 for both Mac and Windows (shipping later this fall). What’s impressive is the big list of pro features in a consumer application and Adobe admitting that Elements is a good fit with iPhoto. Reader “bob” chimed in:
