Forwarding Address: OS X

Is Apple shipping an iPhone soon? The NYT thinks so. I would so dig a phone/PDA from Apple, running Darwin (OS X's Unix) underneath, based on the iPod: 20GB of MP3s, a phone, a DOM-compliant browser, a mini email client all tied by Firewire to OS X.
Sherlock in particular has been repositioned in a way that would make it a perfect counterpart for a portable phone. Its original purpose, which was finding files and content on the computer's local disk, has been transformed into a more general "find" utility program. Now, Sherlock is being extended to search for types of information like airline and movie schedules and restaurant locations. The software can display maps and driving directions.
