The TMZ widget has not updated in about three months just like the AP widget did not where it was later removed where the real reason why the TMZ widget has not updated at all is because verizon has been in contract negotiations with TMZ for several months now so TMZ until they get paid will not provide verizon with the latest updated stories that are on their website. Verizon just fixed their baseball widget where it was missing a team in th NL central standings which was the houston astros but now there are six teams there where verizon finally has a baseball widget that is updating. As far as other issues are concerned with Fios Tv the problems that are affectiing the tv from the guide to on demand to technical issues what the real problem is that is causing it all are the servers that verizon is using where their network server team is currently working on trying to fix it. There is a server for widgets then there is one for on demand then there is one for guide data and on and on. It is a complicated issue where verizon's network data group has been told to not work on any trouble tickets with bad guide data on it until they fix their issues with their servers which could take a while. Fios has been around since 2004 where it first started in texas and they are working towards trying to correct the problems that exist with the Fios network although it is going to take them some time.

Does that explain why their "Galleries" haven't been updated in over four years? I should look through "Aged to Perfection" to look for those who have died since they went up on that wall.
