  1. The weather app in Windows 8 comes with degree Fahrenheit as its default unit for temperature and its a bit tricky to find out how to change that. To do so, open the weather app and fade in the Charms menu (point your cursor to the top or bottom right corner and slide towards the appearing icons). There, choose Settings. Unlike if you open the settings on the main Metro menu this will open the weather settings where you click on Settings again. There you have the option to change the temperature unit from Fahrenheit to Celsius or back if you wish to.

  2. The default windows Weather app is very imprecise for my location, and in any case I am used to another one. Can I set which weather service I want?

  3. I am getting quite annoyed at these new Windows. Haven’t used desktops for about 10 years, and it feels rather uncomfortable. Yes, all is automatic. But then I don’t have any sort of tracking on what is going on, I don’t feel in control. And then I notice this thing also shuts down programs, moves stuff, and changes back settings…. without asking or warning……

    Including farheneit to celsius. I must have changed it at least 20 times in a year. Once in a while some update changes it back to farheneit. Along with other settings, i cant remember them all. Then i have to regularly double check a million settings. Including screen stuff that goes weird.

    And then what happens when monopoly (it almost is a monopoly, that’s why it gets sloppier and sloppier i guess) is total?
