For me, home screen space is valuable property and I like to have my most used apps/widgets on it for quick access. I don't see the benefit of the 'current weather' widgets. Unless your are indoors all the time without windows. But then why do you care what the weather is outside if you are stuck inside.

I realize that everyone has different tastes, but it just doesn't seem efficient.

And yes, I'm just stirring the pot a bit here....
While you can look out the window and see the weather "condition" (ie, rainy, cloudy, sunny), you can't "see" the temperature. So on a fall day in NY, I can look outside and see that it's a bright, sunny day, but the actual temp could be anywhere from 60 to 80 degrees. Makes a big difference when getting myself and my family dressed in the morning!
