  1. So with Google purchasing Nest does anybody use or is planning to use tech to run their home. I have looked at the Belkin Wemo and Philips Hue ranges for lighting but not jumped in yet. I am looking seriously at some kind of smart thermostat for the central heating but apparently even if you could import a Nest Thermostat you have to bugger around with the wiring which I dont particularly fancy so I am going to get the Tado Smart Thermostat. The main reason is my wife works from home for large parts of the week so she always overides the program but then when she goes outs on visits she leaves the heating on which is costing big money. The Tado system works by linking your smartphone to it so when you leave the house it switches of the system and will switch it back on when it recognises your on your way back. You can link more than one smartphone too. You can buy the system for £249.00 or if you want to trial it you can rent it for £6.99 per month which I am inclined to do so hopefully in 12 months time Google will have managed to get Nest onto UK shores.
  2. I know this is going to be met with a lot of scepticism but I'm a sucker for anything that makes me feel like I'm living in the future and I think if google can get anywhere near what this concept ad shows then these could **** rock.
  3. Chrome os, wearables, connected homes, self driving cars etc And probably a bit of android. What are people looking forward to hearing about tomorrow?
  4. Can you guess what #1 is before you click the link? http://www.google.com/zeitgeist/2012/ The annual list of the most searched terms of the year. It's a predictable list of people who died, people who got their tits out and things Apple are selling, but as ever it remains an interesting window into the collective madness of the people who use the internet.
  5. Didn't really want to start a new topic for this but couldn't find anywhere suitable to put it. At work we use Google for all our emails and calendars. I've had SMS reminders set up for ages so that anytime anyone invites me to a meeting or a meeting is about to start I get a text message with the details. I don't have access to my work emails unless I'm at my desk, so this is useful for when I'm out of the office. For years the notifications have all come from one number which I could handily label as "Google" in my phone so everything is kept in one message thread. But recently, they've started coming from a different number every time. Which is very annoying as it buries all my other text messages under dozens of random numbers. Has anyone who might use these notifications had a similar problem? Have you managed to fix it if you have? I'm going to have to turn off sms notifications at this rate. Which isn't the end of the world, but it's mildy inconvenient and I'd rather not. (And yes, I did Google the problem, and whilst I can find people with a similar problem I can't seem to find a fix, so thought I'd ask the fountain of all knowledge that is VT)
