Have you been out to and joined the Average Guy Facebook page yet? If yes, then great and thanks. If no, then you are missing a great group of tech guys! And now you can join and WIN! How good is that?
Here’s the Story
The current group as of May 3, 2013 is at 140 members. When the group grows to 250 members, everyone in the group gets entered into a drawing for $100 gift card from Amazon for active members. Not a member, join today!
So how do can you help yourself win if you are already a member? Tell your tech friends to join us there so we can reach our goal! Once the goal of 250 members is achieved, a name is picked. It could be yours!
It’s that easy. Sign up, tell a friend and WIN. Don’t be #251!
Bonus Entry: Leave a comment below with what you would spend the extra hot $100 on and you will be added to the list one additional time! Easy money!
With all the cloud and private cloud offerings that have come out recently, I thought it would be helpful to lay them out in some kind of matrix that I could update as things change. Below is what I have seen to date. If you know of one that I have missed to needs to be updated, please email podcast@theAverageGuy.tv and I will post the update.

I was first introduced to the Nest as I was scrolling through my large list of RSS feeds in Google Reader in the fall of 2011. Since then my interest has grown in the product. The idea is perfect… take one of the items in your house, the thermostat and make it better. In the past the Nest was sold only through the website www.nest.com but on May 8th, 2012 the Nest became available at Lowes and more recently at the Apple stores and Amazon.com. It is always nice when a product comes to a local retail store so I can get some hands on experience and see the product in action even if it is only a demo.
