I have seen screenshots of windows 8 start screen where the tile of the weather app displays the actual weather and the tile of the news app displays news ticks. Any google image search for windows 8 will explain what I mean.
Contrary to this, my own start screen displays a pictogram of 'weather' and 'news', but does not display the weather or the news themselves.
I looked thought some of the options I could find (after all Metro is a novel UI style) but could not find any that will turn this feature on.
Any idea how can I solve this? Can you confirm that the Skype tile should have had some information on it as well?
