Nest thermostat owners out in the cold after software update cockup

Ugh. I have 2 of the things in my new house... The upstairs one no longer holds a charge after the software update, but works fine if I swap it with the downstairs one.

it's bizzare. has been working fine all year, and then just suddenly... not.

I didn't want wifi enabled 'smart' thermostats. This is def. one of those 'to much of a good thing' kind of things, and why I personally think the 'internet of things' is going to wind up being way too much trouble for most people to bother with.

I mean, really. When keeping your 'smart device' going consumes more time and energy than it's supposedly helping you save, whats the point?
