    just picked up my new ipad 2 yesterday and have a quick question.

    i really like how i am able to put functional icons on my droid's desktop - for example, a mini facebook screen that shows updates; a mini weather channel screen that has summarized weather info; a ticker with news headlines...all things that are constantly updating themselves. that's why i love my droid so much over the iphone...because i can resize the icons.. if i want to keep them as small normal icons, i can. but if i want to resize them and have them display data, i can also do that.

    i know the ipad is unable to do this out of the box, but is there any app or modification i can do to enable it to get this feature? i feel like it's one huge thing that the android OS really does have over apple OS.

    thoughts?

    It's not a plus point really, just a different way of doing things. There are apps in Cydia that give updates on your lock screen, or at the top of your screen. If that helps, I'm sure there's other methods, but I've used the above 2 ways.

    what kind of updates can i get in my lock screen or on the notification pull down? i know there are numerous threads on why i should jailbreak, but i'm still trying to figure it out. pretty sure im going to go and do it though.
