It's not in fact just so you can have a huge clock though, it's more of a designer thing. It looks nice, and appeasing to the eyes. You don't like the look, that is obvious, and that is why we all have personal tastes. So go ahead, put a million little unorganized icons on your front page, that would look tacky to me and millions of others, or put a calendar on the front page, which will again look tacky in my opinion. I just feel like a big clock looks right at home on the front page along with the weather included. I'm sorry you don't feel the same way. We aren't all made the same way, you should of learned that early on broski!
Wow, didn't need to be quite so rude, I was just interested as to the reason.
With regard to the weather part, yes that could be quite useful if it gave the weather for the next few days, but it gives the weather where you are at that moment. Personally I'd prefer to use my eyes to look out of the window, it's probably more reliable. But as you say, each to their own.
