Finding Information on the Web with Sherlock

Sherlock is an incredible feature. It’s not on the Internet—it’s on your Mac, and you can see its icon in your Dock.

Using Sherlock, you can find shopping bargains on the web, track your stocks, get the latest news, research your favorite topics, find out what time the local movie starts, get products and support from Apple, look up defi nitions and synonyms and spellings of words, and much more.
