Product placement

I recently bought a pair of windshield wipers for the prius.  The last pair were falling apart.  I’m pretty sure they were the ones that came with it.  As far as I’m concerned, Toyota cheaped out on them.  They were never all that great.

I got the same brand as I got for the pickup a couple of years ago: Valeo.  I’m not sure how I found them to start with, but they work great.  So if you’re looking for blades…

On the other side of the coin, I uninstalled my Nest thermostat.  In their defense, our use case is not their target.  We have a heater and an air filter and no cooling.  Their usual case is cooling and heating.  Heating was fine.  But controlling the fan was a ridiculous pain in the butt.  So back to the old thermostat.  Two clicks and the fan is on; two and it’s off.  That the Nest couldn’t match that ease of use was unforgivable.
