Ryan Durrell: Dad of All Trades


Love At First Sight: Nest Learning Thermostat (with Video)

Free a dad in your life from his constant monitoring of the temperature of his domain

In addition to the awesome list of great dad gifts YMC's staff has already put together—AppleTV—got it, Nespresso Pixie—need it. I'd like to add a new one: The Nest Learning Thermostat.

Fact: I can instantly detect the smallest change in my home's temperature.

Also a Fact: I am bound by the dad-code to exert absolute control over said temperature.

Now if only someone would give me the Nest Learning Thermostat, I would be free from this biologically-imposed burden to explore new things and/or follow my dreams. This is the best looking, fullest-featured, money-savingest thermostat I have ever laid eyes on.  I can justify its purchase on so many levels. Financial. Ecological. Esthetic.

Make no mistake. It will be mine.

Watch the video below to see it in action for yourself.

AM I RIGHT? Is that not so cool (or hot, depending on the time of day and according to the electric company's peak-rate schedule)? I bet you never thought you could love a thermostat.

For the record, I don't own one, I haven't been sent one, and I don't get a single penny for saying any of the above.  It's just a thing I gotsta have.
