What I need from my weather app

what good is my weather app showing the current weather?

Oh!Yes it saved me from peeking out and see it is raining!

Come on guys, make an app that shows me at a glance how it is going to be when I go out for lunch or leave office to go home.

Build me a widget with a simple slider for  'Time travel'. I am almost never interested in current weather.

Build me a 1X1 icon that tells me if I need to take my umbrella along to work.

Build me what I need ....

Making life simpler in 2014

One of the many things I want to do in 2014 is "to make my life simpler."

As a part of this theme I have been trying to mercilessly trim down my RSS feed. I have even considered consuming news only from a couple of magazines and podcasts .If the news'X' does not appear in my selected 2 news sources then I would be happy taking the risk of not knowing it.

And as I am thinking about executing my plan, this comes up on my RSS reader :

And I followed the link, and now I am a little wiser today having known about this fad called ''Cross fit". Does it make a difference to my life ? Will I be taking up this crazy HIT workout anytime soon?
Time to execute my plan and see if it makes a difference to me in 2014 . Wish me luck...
