    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.

    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.

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

    I use this as an example daily.

    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.
