    A buddy of mine has the Eris, I have the new Droid X but I love the Weather app that came on his phone, how it updates his location as he moves about as well as the weather updates. This would be greatly beneficial to me as I travel all day and work outside. Anyone know of a weather widget that does this?

    Weatherbug can be set to do that. You control, through settings, whether it "follows" your location, and how often it updates.

    I'll say it's pretty good at updating, although sometimes it seems to "forget" to update. You can always force it to update by tapping the widget that comes with the app.

    Are you referring to the flip clock with weather? If so, Weather & Toggle widget can duplicate it exactly. Beautiful Widgets can come close.

    I use The Weather Channel. It's not as flashy and "cool" as the others, but I like it the best. It updates zip code to zip code very well.

    This one comes preloaded. It's an HTC widget. Weather & Toggle Widget from the Market can duplicate it.

    No problem. A lot of skins to choose from. I'm pretty sure the skin you want is the "h7c" clock. I really like the black version - creatively called "clock-black". Haha.
