tado Smart AC Control Review

Do check out my post on tado Smart AC Control – Unboxing & Setup before reading this review.

I have been using the tado Smart AC Control for almost two weeks now and it has sort of taken control over my air conditioner from Ambi Climate. I doubt I will move back to Ambi Climate unless they have third-party integrations like IFTTT.

Moto 360 (Second Generation) Review

Do check out my post on Moto 360 (Second Generation) – Unboxing & Setup before reading this review.

I have been using the Moto 360 (Second Generation) instead of my Apple Watch for almost two weeks now. I do miss my Apple Watch just a little. Perhaps, the only little thing that I missed about from the Apple Watch is the ability to act on notifications.
