whats apps actually make use of the live tiles

I was all fired up too see and use these "live" tiles. But when I actually got the phone there wasn't any tiles except for weather tiles that actually make use of the live tiles. I was hoping for some stuff like sports apps that would show you a live score. Then when a team scored it would update on ur home screen.

Anyone know of any good apps that make use of the live tiles?

Re: whats apps actually make use of the live tiles

Not to mention this is only version 1.0 there are plenty of developers out there.
Some apps being developed will offer live tile updates while others are stand alone apps.
Nonetheless... This os is very light and should be a great foundation for things to come.

Yeah... Thanks Darren... Here's a little report about that....


Samsung Windows Phone 7 devices found to support USB Tethering
Posted on 11-11-10
Surprise, surprise. Despite the fact that tethering isn't currently enabled for Windows Phone 7 devices, a neat trick has revealed the tethering menu for Samsung-based devices. The method involves accessing the phone's diagnostic menu, and changing the USB sync path to Tethered. It's far from plug and play, but if you're looking to take some chances and are eager to stream on your fresh device, read up on the instructions here. This method is reported to work on both the Samsung Omnia 7 and Samsung Focus.
Based on this, it's likely that all Windows Phone 7 devices support tethering at one level or another, but it hasn't been discovered yet. Perhaps a future update will unlock these features. Time will tell.
