Emotional Design Fail: Divorcing My Nest Thermostat [Nielsen Norman Group] - http://www.nngroup.com/article...
Emotional Design Fail: Divorcing My Nest Thermostat [Nielsen Norman Group]
Article from Feb 22, 2015 by Kara Pernice: "Summary: Don Norman’s 3 levels of emotional design (visceral, behavioral, and reflective) helped me understand how my pure love for the Nest thermostat morphed into abhorrence. I was a proud early adopter of the unique, cool, and pretty device. It helped me save energy, and communicated to me. But things went bad when it let me down emotionally." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
More: "[...] When I turned the dial to increase the heat to 66 degrees, rather than responding by making the house warmer, or by informing me that it is now working toward this, it read, "in 1 hour and 20 minutes 66 degrees until 10:00PM.” The next day the house temperature plummeted to a punishing 50 degrees (I realize I may be spoiled) for no reason I was privy to. Here, by the way, is another usability heuristic not heeded: visibility of system status. Try as I might, it won’t listen." - Stephen Mack
She details how with her Nest, she can't actually set the temperature. I'm not a Nest owner, but that's shocking to me. Really? It won't let you actually switch on the heat or the A/C? It thinks it knows better than you what the temperature should be? - Stephen Mack
(Hidden motive: Part of why I'm posting this is because Cristo hates Jakob Nielsen so much that I'm hoping this will irk him into reactivating his FF account just to berate the user design model being leveraged here.) - Stephen Mack
I never had any trouble setting my Nest to the temperature I wanted, reliably -- barring when my furnace actually broke. Every once in a while, it would take a small change in habits a bit too far, but it was trivial to go in and readjust the schedule. You can also turn that function off, and set it all manually. My only beef with them right now is that when I got my new furnace (almost... more... - Jennifer Dittrich
I never had a problem with mine. - Glen Campbell
Haven't read through the entire article yet but I have two and have had no issues changing temps. - rønin
So this writer is divorcing for all the wrong reasons. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Pretty much. It's like she never even bothered to read the simple documentation, much less the more complicated. When it says "in 1 hour and 3 minutes" it is telling you how long it is likely to take for your house to reach that temperature. It visually indicates (by showing red, blue, or white) in the meter whether the furnace/ac is currently active, or passive (the picture shown is the AC, in an active state.) - Jennifer Dittrich
@Stephen you can set the temperature with your Nest. (Of course) - Louis Gray

We partially settled my parents' estate last week. There wasn't a great amount of money, but I didn't want it all to sort of disappear into bills, vacation, and so forth, so I spent a goodly chunk on a really nice watch; something that I hope will become a sort of heirloom.

So, is it still chilli if there's no beans in it? Or is this a thing no one can agree on? I don't really care, I'm just curious.
I'm guessing this varies regionally. I think of chili as being defined more by the sauce. It can be beans, beans with meat or meat alone but there's a certain sort of tomato-chili-cumin sauce I associate with calling "chili". - Spidra Webster
In Texas chilli generally is all meat. No beans. So yeah, definitely regional. - Kirsten from Android
I've never been able to figure out exactly what chilli is. Savoury mince? Bolognese sauce? - Melly
It has MANY variations, Melly, but it's a tomato-based sauce or stew with red chili pepper powder being a major ingredient. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013... Ok. I figured the New Mexicans would use green chili peppers... - Spidra Webster
This chili was beef, onion, peppers and cheese. Tasty but it felt like eating meat sauce. I guess I'm used to beans being in chili, but I'm from the tropics and chili isn't really a thing. - t-ra needs this place from Android
I have a hard time imagining chili without beans, but I know such things exist. - John (bird whisperer)
Yeah, I grew up with the kind with beans. But I'd be perfectly fine with a high quality all-meat chili. I've only had the low grade meat chili that Tommy's puts on its chili burgers/dogs. - Spidra Webster
I've always had beans in my chili, unless it's hot dog chili out of a can. Looks like it's pretty controversial, though. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
It's like BBQ. Just one of those things United Statesians like to fight over. :) - Spidra Webster
My mom always made it with two kinds of beans - pinto and kidney - so that's typically how I do it. Definitely regional, though. Did you ever go to Hard Times Cafe when you were in the DC area, T-ra? They serve Texas style chili that was just meat, though you could have them add pink beans. Cincinnati style had beans. (Oddly enough I'd already decided to have turkey chili for dinner when I saw your post.) - Corinne L
Never went to Hard Times. It's on my list for visits. - t-ra needs this place from Android
Jayden won't eat beans so I make chili with just meat for his chili dogs and add a can of beans for me (I eat it in a bowl with rice). - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I am very much a bean-less chili advocate :P - Chris Topher
To make it even more confusing: chili doesn't have to have tomatoes at all. I make a white chili with ground turkey, navy beans, and green chiles. And a black bean chili that only has tomatoes as one of many ingredients, but they don't make up the base. - Kirsten from Android
Until some Texan applies for Protected Designation of Origin status for a particular recipe, chilli is whatever you like, so long as there's chillis ;) - Pete's Got To Go
^ that makes me wonder if there is a chili-less chili. - John (bird whisperer)
Indeed, John, I imagine there probably is. If you were to make your traditional chili recipe with all of the same ingredients, but leave out the chili/chili powder, wouldn't it still be considered chili? Since it's generally not the main ingredient, I can easily imagine making the "stew" without it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
It's the chili powder. Paprika, oregano, cumin, garlic, onion powder, cayenne pepper. That's how I make my chili powder and anything I use it in, I can call chili :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Chili NEVER has beans. There is a distantly-related dish called "Chili with Beans" but it's not Chili. Nor does chili ever have tomatoes; then it's spaghetti sauce. - Glen Campbell
Here's just one example of an award-winning chili recipe: http://www.esquire.com/feature... - Glen Campbell
My heart is with Glen on this: the best chili does not have beans. (Not Texan pride: I'm a Californian and proud of it.) - walt crawford
so what we learned is y'all got some strong feels about chili, and hey, that's totally ok. - t-ra needs this place from Android

Just in case you were wondering, tickets to the French Open are expensive as all get out.
Open market prices? - bentley
Certainly not Masters expensive...? - Julian
Oui, open market. - Marie
I haven't ever priced the Masters. - Marie
Masters tickets are only $100 per round. (I assume you mean the golf tournament.) The waiting list for the Masters has been closed since 1987. By the way, if you are ever blessed to attend the Masters, a hotdog costs $1 and a soda is $0.50. They basically operate everything at cost. http://www.masters.com/en_US... - Glen Campbell

Yeah, we shoulda been on top of this decades ago. I blame Reagan for us being so far behind. - Spidra Webster
^ Reagan had no chance with oil at 20 $/bbl - Maхx Tee
He really had an animus against it, though. One of the first things he did was remove the solar panels Carter had put on The White House. - Spidra Webster
Solar efficiency during the Reagan era was < 3%. It was literally an order of magnitude more expensive than oil, and the production of solar panels was hideously environmentally damaging. - Glen Campbell

When people post about the date containing numerical sequences or other oddities, I always want to point out that "14" is really "2014" which spoils it. In related news, I am a horrible pedant. #saturdayff

Kevin's take also discounts the value of other types of sequences: 05/10/15, for example. - Bren from iPhone

Meanwhile in rural Canada I renewed my driver's license in 8 minutes, including walking back to my vehicle to retrieve proof of insurance.
Proof of insurance to renew a drivers license? You mean you have to actually own a vehicle to have a license there? - April Russo (FForever!)
even drivers without vehicles have to carry proof of liability coverage. the driver is insured, not the car. car coverage is called "collision", IIRC. - Big Joe Silenced
I suspect the key word is "rural" in that statement. - That's So CAJ!
^ Yup - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Uh, I did mine over the internet in about 3 minutes. - Glen Campbell
I actually renewed mine this past Friday in ~30 minutes which was pretty shocking. Also no wait for car inspection. Even more surprising because we used to have 3-4 DMVs in our county but they closed all of them and opened up a new one farther away. At least it's not a drab, lifeless building anymore. I had to go in for a new photo ID otherwise as Glen mentioned normally we can just renew online. - rønin
They always take a new photo, I believe. Other than that is a matter of checking the insurance policy number and the financial transaction. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Not really looking forward to Monday: 5:45AM flight to DFW, then a middle seat to SJC. People beside me probably won't like it much, either.
So not looking forward to it that I paid $$ to change the flight to 10:45 AM. - Glen Campbell
Oh, and I got an aisle seat. - Glen Campbell
Congrats. I condole with you. I hardly take airplanes anymore because of the discomfort. Luckily, my business doesn't require lots of fast city changes... - Spidra Webster
AND that flight was delayed, which meant I would miss my connection in Dallas, so they rebooked me on a US Airways flight that doesn't leave for another four hours. - Glen Campbell
AND the US Airways flight is now showing as delayed, which means that I only have 20 minutes to make my connection in LAX. - Glen Campbell

Our first Trader Joe's is now open. What are your go to Trader Joe's items?
pain au chocolat (frozen, trust me...), naan, simmer sauces, ginger granola cereal, Italian blood orange soda, lavash... I'm forgetting a bunch of stuff... - Bren
The Indian shelf-stable meals. The Indian frozen meals are pretty good, too. They're cheaper on dairy than most grocery stores. Their ice cream is private labeled Double Rainbow and is some of the best richest non-chunky ice cream you'll find. The mushroom hors d'oeuvres are to die for. I will scarf those in one sitting if someone doesn't stop me. I second the Italian blood orange soda.... more... - Spidra Webster
OOH! I remembered something else: they have pre-marinated meats. kalbi, carne asada, and the like. Those have been really good, too. - Bren
The already-cooked carnitas is good to grab when you're too tired to do more than heat something up. - Spidra Webster
Harvest Hodgepodge frozen veggies (great for stir fry), frozen chicken breasts, turkey bacon (both regular and pepper), flavored sparkling water, organic lemonade, pomegranate lime juice (great with vodka), chicken apple sausage, guacamole, hummus, salsa especial (refrigerated section), salsa autentica (near the tortilla chips), simmer sauces (the masala one is my favorite), olive... more... - Corinne L
OH YES. The carne asada is so good you want to slap someone. Ground beef & ground turkey are great too. - Corinne L
I need to get the pomegranate lime juice next time I'm there... this is going to be one of my favorite threads, I can tell. - Bren
They used to have a chicken salad sandwich on pretzel bread... I don't know if they still have it (pre-made, refrigerated section) but if they do... it was great. - Bren
I am so hungry now. Eric, will your Trader Joe's be selling beer & wine? If so, and you like good wine, I'd recommend getting friendly with their wine buyer as they will clue you in to some great deals. - Corinne L
I can't even imagine a TJ's not selling wine. Wine & cheese were what the store was founded on. (That is, you've introduced me to the novelty of TJ's in possibly dry counties...) - Spidra Webster
Oh, I can't stress this strongly enough: get on the Fearless Flyer mailing list, or make sure you check it regularly online. I've made a number of discoveries reading that. - Bren
In several places back east grocery stores can't sell beer, wine or liquor, Spidra. It was quite a shocker when I moved to CA 14 years ago & went to Safeway or Vons and there were ALL THE BOOZY THINGS. - Corinne L
We have a state law that a single entity can only sells alcohol at one location. They chose the Denver store for the booze. - Eric - Final Countdown from iPhone
*kisses the ground of California* - Spidra Webster
HA HA HA Spidra! - Corinne L
Jo-Jo's, always get the Jo-Jo's. Never be embarrasses to impulse buy the check out counter chocolate, you can't go wrong. - Heather
I swear by their handmade tortillas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Maple cream cookies. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Cheeses! Kalbi - my kids would eat it every day if I let them. Uncooked bratwurst. Their Clif bars tend to be cheaper than elsewhere. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Pre-made curried chicken salad. TJ's brand pita crackers. Indian simmer sauces. Naan. Their pre-made thanksgiving stuffing is tasty. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
Peanut butter, apple sauce, coffee, Californian olive oil, roster red pepper soup, frozen pizza, ginger cookies, meat,syrah cheese, sprouted grain bread - Mr. The Jason Fleming from Android
The apple cider. - Julian
I should give their Fort Worth store another chance, armed with a shopping list from this post. - Greg GuitarBuster
pain au chocolat. And more pain au chocolat. - Glen Campbell
Nuts, California e.v. olive oil (local makers with $20/half liter EVOO say "get TJ's if you can't afford ours"), Israeli cous cous, maple syrup (we get Grade A Canadian, but there's also Grade B and Vermont), the three-small-chocolate-bars-in-a-wrapper Dark and Extra Dark varieties and the organic Extra Dark chocolate bars. Oh, and dried fruit. - walt crawford
Their nuts and dried fruit are wonderful! I keep a bag of the mesquite almonds in my drawer at work for snacks and their sweet and spicy pecans and dried cranberries are very tasty in salads. I also love their mild cheddar and triple cream brie cheese and they have a smoked mozzarella that was very good in my omelette the other night. - vicster.
Do they have anything that is not pre-made? - Elena
Yes - you can get cheese, meats, vegetables etc. - Glen Campbell
Lots of stuff, Elena. TJ's is like any other grocery store in many respects, just on a smaller scale. Most of their items are TJ's own label(s). You could conceivably do all your grocery shopping there, but if there are certain brand items you want (e.g., Coca Cola products, Tyson poultry) you would have to go to your local major supermarket. - Corinne L
Coffee. Nuts. Frozen green beans. Appetizers. Frozen Indian foods. Simmer sauce. Pumpkin butter - Christina Pikas from iPhone
COOKIE BUTTER. - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
OMG how had we forgotten about Cookie Butter? - Julian
I'm not close enough to a Trader Joe's to go very often, unfortunately. When I do visit one, I make sure to check out the cheese selection and the beer and wine. - John (bird whisperer)
