Can someone from The Weather Company advise if you plan to launch the new Weatherzone Silver and what differences will there be compared to the current Weatherzone?

Can't wait for the weatherzone Gold product laugh

When advertising for the new product perhaps the slogan should be(as used by amex for their platinum card)

"Weatherzone silver..its not for every one but your just not any one!"..that should make people feel important enough.

any way on a serious note its a pity that some of the previously free stuff will go..but I suppose there are bills to be paid a with a lot of good hard work gone into making this product so enjoyable for a weather buff like myself.
