Watson is an extendable application for Mac OS X that gives an "Aqua" user interface to a number of Internet-based services such as stock quotes, telephone lookup, and movie schedules. Watson connects to a handful of other useful services available on the Internet.

Intended to complement the Web browser, Watson constructs a facade over certain services, collecting them in a single Mac OS X application. Watson speeds up navigation, since HTML does not need to be rendered on-screen and no superfluous graphics are transmitted over the Internet. Tools integrate with other Mac OS X applications such as TextEdit, Preview, and more...

Watson still works on a MacBook Pro 2.33GHz, late 2006 model, running 10.4.10. Of course, it is running through Rosetta, but it still works great.

Just great software. I use it constantly. Only trouble I have ever had is that a couple of times the Google search failed to connect to Google. Hardly Watson's fault nor the Google tool's fault.

Support by Karelia is terrific, exceptionally good. I got prompt email responses from them the times that the Google tool seemed to not work. Turned out it was the Google service at fault.

Solid software, well-written, easy to use. Watson is exceptional and worth the download.

Watson continues to the best of breed. Apple's Sherlock rip-off and Macromedia's new Macromedia Central just don't compare.

I wish the remote control had a stop botton,so you could stop the tape.Pause botton is not enough.Also the resolution could be improved so you could use the whole screen not just the smaller windows.Other than that Eyetv is a great thing to have

Watson is *way* better than the new Sherlock. Apple tried to copy them but did a lousy job. Watson is cool! I've been using this program since it was released - well worth the registration fee.

Better and faster than Sherlock. I paid my $30 for this app and never looked back. It is updated frequently and I love it! New channels are being added all the time. Now if they can just add a MacUpdate channel. ;)
