well, I figured out the weather. sorry but I guess i didn't have config setup because i went back and it was blank.
weather info now works in iphone. but I'd still like to know how it gets the data? (RR is logging onto a weather server I assume when I have internet access?) cool.
but I still don't know why the onboard keypad in RR iphone doesn't work when i hit enter. (the search box on browser is blank after i hit enter)
