In traditional Windows operating systems you have icons on your desk-top and it tells what you can do, no other information other than the short cuts that you put on your desktop. It is valuable but it is not information, Start screen in Windows 8 has tails and pictures.Each of these tails represent an APP that you can launch.Notice these tails gives you the live information. For example Mail App shows you or cycles through the most recent e-mails that you have got, Calendar App shows what is your next appointment and time.These Apps registered themselves with Windows and ask Windows in periodic basis about information. You can do this not only in consumer Apps but also in business Apps.
