Windows Vista Live Weather Gadget

One of the new features in Windows Vista is the use of Gadgets, there are a number of weather related gadgets but the majority are mundane and your often left wondering how frequent or reliable the data is.

As such we have used a new Gadget that directly links to our live weather feed and embeds the data in a handy Vista Gadget.

To view our feed simply download the Gadget from here, once its installed search for ‘London’ via the options screen and pick the second on the list. This will connect you to the live feed from our roof which is updated every 15 seconds.

If you need more frequent updates – every 3 seconds – and want to view the weather full screen you can open our Flash based viewer.
