NEST Thermostat, Lightning Strikes, Surge Protectors and UPS Devices – HT081
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.
