    [ Live tiles] how should they work?


    I just need a confirmation:
    1)Does the photo tile show only the same 3-4 photos from your picture library even if you have tons of photos there?
    2) does the Bing travel tile slideshowing the same destinations : Budapest, Rio, Paris all day
    3) does the sport app and news app show the same photo all day and the same 3-4 news articles.
    4)why the spors tiles does show photos only if you set your language an location to USA, UKetc. and not for your actual location and language in relation with your sport interests: Im not keen on american footbal or NBA or about premiere league only.
    5) should I keep Bing. I mean a new photo easch day its more than nothing

    I am not surprised at this behavior as none of my built-in "Metro" apps work correctly.
