Nest Thermostat – House Tech

Like many of you I did not pay too much attention to my thermostat. As long as the heat and air conditioner kicked on and kept me and my family comfortable I was content. Occasionally, I would adjust the thermostat depending on the climate outside. For the most part I would keep it at the same temperature through out the day. I came across an article about a Nest Thermostat. As I began to read I became very interested in learning more about this product. There were several highlighted features that really sparked my interest. Also, there is no denying the Nest has cool contemporary design over standard thermostats.

Who Knew Toilets Are Packed Full Of Technology?

We all use them every single day and not much thought of what an integral part of our life toilets play. It was not until recently I discovered how confusing it can be to purchase seemingly such a simple item. Nope, not so cut and dry. In fact toilet manufactures are marketing machines making their toilet sound like the best on the market. Well, there is a vast difference from one toilet to another, even within the brand.

Samsung Smart Watch, Do People Even Wear Watches Anymore?

One of the newest crazes in the tech space is wearable tech or a SmartWatch. Just another way to help differ ones self from the competition. Personally, I am not so sure about this concept, well it is no longer a concept actually. I happen to still wear a standard watch and do not see that changing any time soon. That said, I am likely in the minority any more.

Wish You Had A Skimmer For Your Koi Pond?

I built my pond with grand ideas and lots of gallons in mind. Well, I still have the grand ideas, but pond not as many gallons as I had hoped. One oversight was I did not appreciate what a traditional skimmer would do for my pond. This and I felt my koi pond was too small for a large integrated skimmer. I ended up with crystal clear water, with the exception of floating particles, pine needles, etc. This made all my hard work go to the wayside. Not to mention any random leaves or pine needles unless scooped out with a net would end up at the bottom of the pond. Continue reading Wish You Had A Skimmer For Your Koi Pond?
