Bug Description

I starting playing with usermetrics and the infographic and think it is a really cool way to personalize the device. AFAIK the messaging app, dialer app and camera app are all using libusermetrics. I just filed a wishlist bug on the music app to start using it to (eg songs played, songs imported).

One thing I've noticed though is that the infographic always starts on the same metric: "calls made today". One can see the other metrics by double clicking on the infographic. If for a moment we suppose that I am very unpopular and never receive calls, the default view of the infographic will always say "No calls made today" and the default view will always look the same. I think the default view should not be static. Some ideas:
 * show the last metric the user was viewing. Eg, I move to the camera metric. I then slide it away to access an application. I put the phone down, the screen blanks, then later I unblank it and I am looking at the camera metric
 * show a random metric
 * have the default view be a union of all the metrics, such that if I received 2 calls, 5 messages, took 10 pictures and played 6 songs, it would say "23 activities today" (or something) with the circles representing all the metrics. Double clicking cycles through the different texts/circles for each metric
 * just have the circles be the union of all the metrics, but show random text or text from the last metric the user was viewing.

Since the circles are the most interesting uniquely changing part for users, the union of all the circles has a certain appeal in the default view. Showing the last metric that the user was viewing would also be quite useful. Perhaps the functionality of the metric is most interesting-- eg, knowing that I received 10 messages is more important than if I played 17 songs, but we have indicators for important things like that and IMHO we shouldn't try to guess what is important to display to the user in the infographic (it could be configurable, but showing the last viewed one seems to make more sense than making it configurably static).
