Why I just bought a MacBook Air instead of the new Pro

Widgets on the Home screen.

The iPhone Home screen has barely changed from the original array of static icons - the only new things are that the calendar icon now has the actual date and the email has a thing saying how many unread emails in the inbox.

My phone has both of those, yet also shows me the time at the international offices, the weather forecast, the alarms I have set, the subjects of recent emails, my next flight and next appointment.

When any of it becomes unimportant I can remove it, and when new info becomes important to me I can get an app that puts it right on my Home screen.

Usually in several different ways so I can pick the one I like.

- Eg when on holiday I pull work emails completely off the home screen.
