Re: [OT] Weather Underground being acquired by The Weather Chann
My first thought is it would just make the site worse. Then the more I think about it, it would be an improvement to TWC.
TWC is no longer "The Weather Channel" just like MTV is no longer "Music Television". I am so sick of these reality like programs every time I want to look up what's going on. I hear some rumbling in the middle of the night and want to know if I'm about to get pounded, go the the TV, turn on TWC, and all I get is one of there stupid reality programs. No local on the 8's (for a radar shot). I'm an aviation junkie and like the Alaska Coast Guard show and the show with Buffalo Air. I just don't want to see them on TWC. Just like I don't want to see pro wrestling on SiFi. To me TWC is selling out.
I'm currently still on Dial-Up at home and have analog cable. Yes I'm in the stone ages, but I'm working on it. When I finally upgrade my ISP I will no longer be going to TWC for weather info.
said by tanker001: While I no longer watch cable TV, from what I remember, even when MTV morphed into something else, they still had MTV2 that that was mostly about music.

As for what happens with wunderground -- I'm still using it via »classic.wunderground.com since I don't like at aall their newer interface. Are they going to be better or worse, or unchanged? I have no idea, but I think we'll find that out soon.
