I watched two episodes of Sherlock, the new BBC series that puts Holmes and Watson in the modern day and emphasizes Sherlock's twitchy sociopathic nature. The first one was pretty good! The second one was... well, the first one was pretty good!

However, it nags at me that even though Holmes is constantly dicking around with smartphones, either texting or looking up regional weather patterns to match the mud on someone boots or whatever, when he does his trick of figuring out everything about someone based on their scars, mannerisms and dress habits, nobody thinks "Oh, he probably googled me just now."

On the other hand, Sherlock's enemies seem to keep tabs on him through his website, so there's a nod to our compulsively public lives.
