I'm going to check out the radio show when I have a bit more time, but I was watching television last night and a commercial came on for the Reliant Nest Learning Thermostat - seems to me it has some "smart" capability...of course I always liked Matthew McConaughy's voice...

Yes, that's a cool thermostat. We did a story on it a couple years ago if I remember right. I remember it was a smart thermostat developed by a former Apple executive. the thing learns your preferences and begins to operate accordingly.

It also knows if you are away and it also does some minor adjusting to temps to promote economical usage...pretty neat but a bit pricey at $249.99 although Reliant is offering it for free if you sign up with them.
