A thread for pet peeves you have regarding design and features, which might not really be bugs, where moaning about them is a bit petty but you can't help yourself.

I hate that in the notification area, the stock weather widget display the chances of rain every hour even if the chance is <10%. Like there is currently a 2% chance of rain in my area right now, and 2-4% every hour for the rest of the day. Because the font is blue it just gives a depressing rainy feel about the whole day, even though it probably won't rain.

They should just go in steps of 10% and not bother showing these small chances...

Yep, it shows between 1% on up and that is just plain silly to show a 1% chance of rain. I don't pay attention to that and look below for the chances for the whole day.
That's not really Apple's fault. They just feed the data from Weather Channel. They could I suppose parse it and if the number is higher, brighten the color, otherwise keep it darker.

Not really. If they can parse it to colour it differently, by the same token they could strip it out. They get the data from external sources but they can choose what to display and how they display it (just like humidity, etc. etc.)
