Jim, Andrew and Christian are joined this week by Gordon Schmidt and Bill Paulmenn for Show 81 of The Home Tech Podcast. Gordon spends the first part of the podcast talking about the NEST Thermostat that he reviewed in a post right here on the site. We also talk about a lightning strike at Bill’s place and the destruction is caused to his out buildings. That discussion led into one about Surge Protectors and UPS Devices. Andrew found what will be come a popular Christmas gift for this year and Jim finished up the conversation with a question about the new leadership at Yahoo and a rant about not getting the newest update for his Sprint Galaxy SII.

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.
