IFI (I Found It)
The Nest Learning Thermostat is an electronic, programmable, and self-learning wifi-enable thermostat that optimizes the heating and cooling of homes and businesses in order to conserve electricity. And if the company’s claims are correct, this smart little device can save you 20% off your energy bill each year.
Nest is built around an operating system that allows interaction with the thermostat via its easy-to-use control wheel or through your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or computer. Control your thermostat anywhere with an easy-to-use interface. This smart thermostat can determine whether or not you’re around or whether the sun is shining on the thermostat and instantly adjust accordingly—saving your money. There’s no need to program your device either as Nest works to figure out your patterns and schedules to fit you.
Since the Nest is connected to the Internet, you can instantly access your device settings or energy history and schedule from any device, anywhere. The company also pushes updates to your thermostat regularly to fix bugs, improve performance and add additional new features.
The Nest thermostat is available online for $249 at www.nest.com, or at many stores locally.

|On a Personal Note…|
Our sweet little girl is growing up fast! It’s hard to believe she will be 4 months old this month! She brings so much joy to our lives. Adalyn wakes up kicking her legs and giggling.
No matter how early that is, it always puts smiles on our faces. She loves to stand up (with help) and often tries to sit up on her own. She enjoys being where the action is. We are so very blessed that God gave us this gift!
|Which Of These 4 Cloud Computing Solutions Is The Right Fit For You?|
Most likely you’ve heard all of the commotion around cloud computing and know that it’s the “Next Big Thing” in business technology. Yet, despite all of the hype, most businesses really don’t understand exactly what cloud computing is and what it could do to help their business. “What are my options?” and “What is right for me?” are two of the top questions that I hear quite often. Here are 3 of the most common types of cloud computing solutions for business. Could one of these be right for you?
|Could Terrorists Really Use Software To Crash Your Car?|
A recent AOL online article titled “The Scary Truth Of How Terrorists Could Crash Your Car” freaked a lot of people out by implying that terrorists could easily hack into your car’s computer systems and wreck your car (or hundreds of cars at a time) at speeds exceeding 100 mph. While that is a scary thought to consider, the facts are quite a bit less severe than the article suggests. Nothing like some great sensationalist journalism, eh?
|Don’t Be a Domino Pusher|
You can line up DOMINOS in a beautiful pattern and spend hours doing it … but all you have to do to knock them all down is PUSH over the first one (the lead domino) and the rest will follow. The same is true about a business. You can spend years and years building up a great business with a super reputation and one employee can cause a customer to never do business with you again. One employee can PUSH a customer the wrong way and run them off … in other words … they knocked down one DOMINO. But, could that one upset customer cause other customers to follow them?
