Why isn't the UI of my Nest a browser for a circular screen? Does my thermostat need auto-update in order to be able to reliably show ad-hoc weather warnings? Rather, than, say, sandboxing the display module? Auto-update isn't a security panacea. 

Doesn't it cost more to build auto-updating thermostats; are non-updating ones out of scope for the web?
