    Philips Hue lights are available from Apple. Anyone thinking about getting some of these tomorrow?

    I saw these first, too. But Hue is coming tomorrow instead of next March. And, while a little more costly, the Hue lights can change colors and the GreenWave lights can only do on/off/bright/dim, as I read it.

    They'd better work damned well for $200 worth of light bulbs.

    In theory this an amazing idea. The length of time they will last to remote operation of. However comma how often do you really need to dim a light? I mean really?
    Novelty aspect is amazing. Much like Siri. Cool at first. Not used after a few weeks.

    And they'll sell a zillion of them because they're in the Apple store.

    As George Carlin said so many years ago, "If you nail two things together that have never been nailed together before, some schmuck will buy it!" :D

    I wouldn't pay $200 for it, though - I don't think.

    I use this as an example daily.
    "your iPhone will do almost everything now. Siri will even date you. Only thing it doesn't do is dispense tooth paste, but wait for next years model. It just might by then. "

    I'm all for home automation. My A/V network is pretty extensive. However, I've never had any desire to set this kind of thing up. I guess I'm just not that into light.

    I got the lights for Christmas
    There are 3 bulbs so each gets 1 of them
    Hubby the safety freak can turn it in and off even when we are traveling
    Kid has sensory issues and it is the perfect gift for him
    I will use mine when I wake up lights are to bright
    200 yeah pricy but it is still a fun Christmas gift
    They have those belkin plugs with App I thought to get one too
