    Watching music videos straight from the homescreen... That would be fresh!

    Lol. Still images only so far. Updates every 30min, iirc, but not an "accurate" 30min.


    There is variance.

    I gotta be honest, that seems kinda silly. Why would I want to watch a tiny video on a already small screen?


    And the Music tile updates with whoever is playing.

    But yeah, seems like a waste on such a small tile. I just wish the music/video tile would change artists images when it changes songs, without having to actually go into the tile.

    Yeah, the novelty of eye-candy live tiles has passed for me. Just need useful, at-a-glance info.

    Yeah it would be more novelty than useful. I would compare it to moving wallpapers in Vista or the Bing moving homepage.

    The music hub is fine, but what I would like is for the artist bio to include the latest news and concert info. Now that is "live" to me!
