  • It is a beautiful product… The kind of thing that could wrench my wallet open. I already have programmable thermostats, however, my family sets the bloody things to “permanent hold” mode at their favorite temps. Of course this defeats the whole purpose of having them. :(

    However, the Nest has a Orwellian flaw that I would have to have fixed before I could own one. The way it works now, I think “the net” would know your home schedule and if you are away as a part of its normal operation. Which is of course a privacy/security issue. Just think of it, an appliance that you tell when you are away, it has its own motion detector just to see for itself, and just imagine if it also included a microphone! Big Brother is watching. ;)

No public wish lists :(
