The Smart Thermostat

Goods & Gadgets

If someone told me back in the 80’s that I’d own a “smart phone” one day, I’d have thought they were sci-fi nutty. Well, not only is this true today, (and I’m a total iPhone groupie-geek, by the way), but it looks like everything from our refrigerators, washers and dryers, and even vacuum cleaners are going “smart”.   Next up? Today’s home gadget, the Nest, a sleek and beautiful-looking, learning thermostat that not only keeps your home temperature just the way you like it, it also has a special green leaf indicator to increase savings on energy and expenses. Oh, I almost forgot! You can control the Nestremotely from your iPhone (cue flying doves and string section swell). Kinda gives Einstein a run for his money.
