Sherlock was introduced in Mac OS 8.5 as a tool for searching the contents of your computer as well as the Internet. It allowed for flexible searching of file names, types, and even contents. In Mac OS X 10.2, its generic searching capabilities were reintegrated into the Finder, and Sherlock itself became a tool for querying specific types of data online. For example, you can keep track of stocks or find out what movies are playing at nearby cinemas. Other channels include phone book, translator, dictionary, and eBay tracker. For more information, consult Mac Help for information specific to the version of Sherlock installed on your system.
