10.4: Update Weather widget in the background

This is not a smart comment.

Some of us fully understand the ramifications of ongoing processor usage, but just want the information to be there as soon as Dashboard comes up.

I would agree.

One of the first third party weather widgets I saw was on Ars and the thing he changed (due to complaints I recall) was the updating in the background. Too much CPU and too much bandwidth (for dialup).

Mmm - that's a helpful comment.

personally I have plenty of bandwidth and enough processor headroom and I find the lag in update very annoying so in the whole I think that this is a really good hint.
