You forgot your Pedantic Grammar Nazi Icon
The EULA that came out a few months ago gives Nest the right to track you on the Internet with the comment that " the may not be able to honor Do not track requests". They also sell them via the utilities so that the power companies can change the temperature of you house at will during times of peak usage. I have not given the Utility the permission to change the settings as I bought it before that program came out and before Google bought the company.
They have had issues with bricking the controllers on software updates. Mine decided to set itself to away mode and set the temperature to 85 degrees. I sleep during the day and being woken up because the house was unbearably hot is not pleasant.
I am looking for a replacement. I don't want to be tracked and it is not reliable enough.
I only ask because I had bought an electronic lock years ago. Everything worked great until a thunderstorm hit and it had to be reprogrammed .
It was Van Halen.
"Wallace, from Las Vegas but sentenced in San Jose, will also undergo a mental health evaluation"
I am seeing this more and more. The old Soviet Union thought you were crazy if you didn't like living this. It has been used for years as way to have child predators locked up long after there sentence is over. The public hasn't complained, "think of the Children", so now they are going to use it for other things.
Of course people like AC above think it is a great idea.
For some reason the building code is to put the meter behind the privacy fence where the meter reader has to go to read it. Even if you don't have a privacy fence if you have a pool you have at least a chain linked fence. A lot of rural meter readers carry quality binoculars to read the meter so they can avoid the dogs..
With a smart meter you can read and turn them off remotely if the bill hasn't been paid. Of course you can turn them off during periods of high use for rolling black outs too. This is one reason cities are pushing Smart Thermostats. The City will install them for free and give you a whole ten dollars if you give them the right to adjust your thermostat when they want.
The start would be getting rid of Tim Cook.
When I try to upgrade my 5s it tells me it needs 700MB free in order to upgrade and that I need to adjust my music settings. I have 4.1 GB free so I don't see the problem. I think I will wait a couple of days before I try again.
What if you aren't in range of a signal? I know a lot of times I am not.
We need a "Former Apple Fanboy" icon.
Is it the Judean Peoples Front or the Peoples Front of Judea that has the Crack Jewish Suicide Squad?
I can't keep track
watch this documentary
a lot of civil rights activists used guns to protect themselves
Chicago has very strict control laws, yet someone is murdered every 13 hours. Guns don't jump off the shelf and shoot people by themselves
This is for you Mr. AC.
One of the functions I used to have was the ability to change the programing on the thermostat from my desktop. The latest software upgrade breaks this. Not directly of course, or they would fix that. It is the new EULA that is the problem. I have to accept using cookies and I have to accept that they " might not be able to honor a do not track request". If I do not accept the terms I can not use the software anymore. I haven't followed changes in the law, if there have been any, but it used to be public utility records were all public records. That meant any one could see my bills. I wonder if this means that anyone could request my browsing history because it is part of the correspondence with my nest thermostat and my city utility.
I am looking for a new thermostat.
Ok I downloaded it. Something like 27000 points for winning. I took a look at the high score list and someone is over a billion.
A thumbs up for the link. It is disappointing how many Apps have not had a recent audit. Although in just glancing at the link I didn't see how long recent was.
For those who might be interested.
You beat me to it.
The people who run the numbers rackets used to use, -and may still use= the last four digits of the volume of the NYSE. Completely random and easily verifiable.
I keep seeing on different sites that either the county or FBI reset the password. Well if you reset the password you know what the new one is. Well who reset it?
He kept talking about whether or not you can trust the Government. He said something about the abuses we have had were back in the J. Edgar Hoover era.
I walked out at that point.
I don't get the down voles. Just look up the Kelo ruling and the many disasters that came with it. One of which is the keystone pipeline. NAFTA allows a foreign company to use eminent domain to take Americans land. I know that, for now, Obama , has blocked the Keystone pipeline. That hasn't stopped a number of people in Texas from giving up their land rather than risk getting less for it under eminent domain. You can also look up all of the land taken by former Governor Rick Perry for toll roads and a new railroad line for Toyota.
For fun you can always look up Donald Trump and eminent domain.
So it's "a million to one chance"? Keep trying then. It is a dead cert it will come back to life!
I used to work with a Scotsman who married an American and moved to the U.S. permanently. The first year he had to file he had a stack of forms on his desk and he was shaking his head saying " What is this Bloody Shit?"
Can you come up with a former Apple fanboy icon?
Ivy, Cook et al have really trashed what used to be a nice easy to use computer.
It is a bipartisan effort.
Watch the true crime shows like " forensic files". Some will scare you to death. There was a cold murder case that occurred before DNA and there was still enough tissue around to get a match. They had two hits, one would have been a ten year old boy at the time of the murder and another was a guy who would have been old enough to have committed the murder. He was convicted solely on the DNA evidence.
The cop said that when the guy was told they DNA match on him to the murder " he didn't act innocent. Whatever that means.
Technically it is the United States of Mexico. It is just that no one calls it that. We are still called Americans.
Depends on the cop and how many people are taking videos.
Watch this dog chew the bumper off a cop car.
Safari doesn't work anymore. It goes blank, won't load web pages, quits, etc. I don't if it the hacking thing people were talking about- and it seems to have disappeared from the press- or something else . I am looking at other options now.
If memory serves rowdy roddy said or in his matches. I haven't found a video reference to that yet.
It's"Kick ass OR chew gum".
It might not be an Apple in my future.
Ask your girlfriend if you don't get it.
So these kids will have a job when they grow up.
"in some cases alleged to be as low as 3–5GB"
I have seen it on mine. The funny thing is I can't see how much I use. When I check my usage on their website it just says unlimited. When I check it on my phone I just see some outrageous number.
I blame Clash of Clans.
Thermite might be hard to get. Tannerite is easier.
I could understand it in the old days. Now I just use my phone.
Thanks. I needed a smile today.
Everyone I know who has worked in a union shop will tell you that scene is spot on. My Dad spent his life working in factories and he thought that was one of the best movies he had ever seen.
The SEC might want to talk to him.
....does NY get for $1.5 billion dollars
Watch this one then.
Interesting story also about the sound track. Branson wanted a soundtrack by the Eurythmics who were very big at the time and the director changed it.
"Julia" is the only song by the Eurythmics that made it onto the movie and only at the credits. It is still my favorite song by them.
Used to be the editors did this. Read Walter Cronkite's autobiography. If you said something happened to John Smith and it was John Smyth it was your read end.
Go to Dilbert.com and it has a search function.
I doubt they lied. Most of them don't know what they are talking about but will give you an answer anyway.
Sounds like marketing or upper management. This reminds me of an old Chevy I had. It had a six cylinder engine and worked real well. Marketing decided that model needed a V8. It fit. So the next years model had a V8. It fit. Sort of. You need to yank the engine to replace the plugs. I think someone figured out how to lift the engine just a little bit to change out the plugs. That wasn't an engineering decision.
