Nest releases cheaper, redesigned Thermostat E
Uncategorized / August 31, 2017

The Nest thermostat wants to shake off its reputation as a high-tech luxury item. Nest Labs is releasing a new version of its flagship smart thermostat with a new look and a big $80 price drop meant to appeal to regular folks. The Nest Thermostat E, launching Thursday, will cost $169 and feature a new vanilla design to help it blend into a home instead of stand out. The changes, while minor, are a notable departure from the Alphabet (GOOGL, Tech30)-owned Nest Labs. Since launching six years ago, the Nest Learning Thermostat has won design awards and dominated the smart home market that it helped launch. But at $249, the device’s price was too steep for many home owners, even with the promise of saving money on energy bills. A favorite of early tech adopters, the smooth wall-mounted disk was a conversation piece as much as a heating and cooling device. Now the company wants people to forget it’s even there. The metal ring has been replaced with white polycarbonate plastic. The crisp LCD screen is covered with a frosted display that fades to light gray when not in use. There’s less to see anyway, with a new minimalist look…

Body-slammed reporter wants to know why Rep. Gianforte still won't grant interview
Uncategorized / August 30, 2017

Ben Jacobs, the reporter who was assaulted by Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte, says Gianforte has reneged on what Jacobs believed was a commitment to grant him an interview. Gianforte, a Republican businessman, was elected to the House on May 25, one day after he body-slammed Jacobs. Jacobs is now going public about the dispute. He says Gianforte is continuing a “pattern of avoiding responsibility for his actions.” Gianforte’s team, for its part, says the congressman was never offering an on-the-record interview — but that he will be happy to sit down with Jacobs for an off-the-record meeting. “Congressman Gianforte’s offer to Mr. Jacobs remains on the table,” a spokesman said Tuesday night. Gianforte has spoken with some members of the media in Montana, but has kept a relatively low profile in his first two months on the job. On June 12 Gianforte pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge. A Montana judge ordered him to complete 40 hours of community service and attend anger management classes. Jacobs was in court that day. When he gave a “victim statement” before the judge, he said he hoped to interview Gianforte in the future, since that’s what he was trying to do…

Cook sold off the other shares between Thursday and Monday for a total of about $43 million. The filing didn’t say what Cook plans to do with the money, and an Apple spokesman declined to comment. But the Apple CEO said in 2015 that he plans to give most of his wealth away…

How social media is helping Houston deal with Harvey floods
Uncategorized / August 28, 2017

We’re finding out what a major flood emergency looks like in the era of social media. Hundreds of stranded Texas residents sought help on Sunday by posting on Facebook and Twitter. They tweeted their addresses to emergency officials. They organized rescue missions through Facebook groups. And they posted harrowing pictures to emphasize just how high the flood waters were. Requests for rescues were common: “Anyone in North Houston have a boat and can rescue a 3 &6 yo, mom, gramma and grandpa and 2 dogs?” Some particularly web-savvy officials responded to the requests nearly in real time. We have seen this kind of web-enabled emergency response in other countries before, but never in the United States on this scale.
