    Have fun at CES! That bit about what if Microsoft became IBM, and why that wouldn't necessarily be such a bad thing was kind of thought provoking. Have to chew on that one for a while. Though I recall OS/2 2.0 and how that really was going to be the moment for IBM. OS/2 was great. I remember that it did a much better job with running Windows than Windows 3.1 could even do at the time. Then Windows 95 changed everything.

    Amiga OS was awesome at the time.

    With smart thermostats there are some benefits beyond how nice it looks. They have several "energy partners" that offer discounts for enrolling in energy reduction services. Nest refers to them as: Seasonal Savings, Rush Hour Rewards, and Time of Savings. An example would be an electric company, in my case ComEd, informs Nest via the Internet to reduce energy usage when there is peak power demand in the Summer to try and avoid power outages. Electric companies do similar discounts for businesses that reduce energy usage and now they are offering savings to home customers.

    As a "younger" MS enthusiast, I can say that I started following MS because of Win Phone. I used to love Win Phone's social integrations that were great when I was in HS/College. The phones were lower cost than the iPhone and had the best of everything I needed. After, Win Phone...I was hooked. :(
