I'm new to this Android stuff so please be patient if I am incorrect (or as some like to do..."that was said yesterday so that is old news" ). As I understand it there are widgets that get info at varying rates of time. Weather does it every 30 min or so?? So why do you HAVE to have a widget or whatever do that all the time? Why can't you just check the weather...............when you NEED to check the weather? I mean this device is fast with the internet, why not just use a weather app or an internet site and check what you need to check when you need to check it? I mean it seems like a horrible waste of data and time and battery life and........ With my other smart phones I just opened an app and looked at the radar and got all the info I needed.
