Jeffrey gets on the love and hate bandwagon with the same perspective.
Remember the Mac app Sherlock? It was a great little Mac file and search utility from back in the day; the last century, actually– so ancient it ran on Mac OS 8 as a Finder extension.
A few years later, in the early Mac OS X days, Apple incorporated many of Sherlock’s functions and features into Spotlight and Dashboard. Guess what? Sherlock didn’t make it and, now, anytime Apple takes app features from an app developer, they get Sherlocked.
Apple does not mind doing the ‘Sherlock’ dance on app developers.
