Review By Roger Fingas Friday, June 29, 2018, 12:38 pm PT (03:38 pm ET) As the British might say, the Eve Aqua "does what it says on the tin," even if it could stand refinements in some areas. When Apple launched iOS 11 last year, one of the key additions it made to HomeKit was support for sprinklers and faucets. People have been automating these products for years, especially in hydroponics, so it's only natural that Apple would join in. The Eve Aqua is one of the first products made with this support in mind. Elgato describes it as a "smart water controller," and that's as good a description as any. It sits between an outdoor faucet and a self-supplied hose, turning water on and off on command. Installation is simple overall, but tricky in its first step: inserting two bundled AA batteries, of all things. You wouldn't think that would be trouble, but the Aqua's design requires you to press on a panel that slides up not just the battery compartment but the entire front panel of … [Read more...] about Review: Elgato’s Eve Aqua water controller is for HomeKit diehards

Everyone loves a good combo. Pineapple on pizza, for instance, or Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett (seriously, they’re great together). The Nest Hello video doorbell and Nest x Yale smart lock are another example of a good combination when purchased together, though only when they’re paired up with other Nest devices. The Nest Hello and Yale smart lock were both announced back in September 2017, though they weren’t available until recently. Both products are part of a larger family of devices, which includes products like the Nest Guard and Nest Thermostat, and they’re components of what’s essentially Nest’s smart home platform. There’s even a connection standard that unites them all called Google Thread, a proprietary network protocol that keeps the Nest devices synced up without clogging your home’s Wi-Fi network. The Nest Hello and Next x Yale smart lock retail for $229 and $249, respectively. And while each device plays its part well in … [Read more...] about Nest Hello and Yale lock review: a smart entrance
My dad’s company had season tickets to the White Sox. On muggy Midwest summer days we’d go as a family—always sitting in the same seats, 25 rows above first base. I told this to a counselor I’ll call Bill, when he asked me to remember a childhood memory. It was part of the confrontational circle, a form of group therapy with a self-explanatory name. A half-dozen other clinicians looked on as Bill laid into me. “I bet you don’t go to those games with your family anymore, do you?” Bill asked in a way that felt more like telling. I shook my head no. It was the summer of 2012, and the beginning of my third round of treatment for an opioid addiction I’d been trying to kick since I was 17. Now, I was 22 and out of excuses for where all my money went. I’d confessed to my mom that the pills I’d been using had escalated to heroin. At the behest of a counselor, I checked in to a residential program, the kind of rehab you probably … [Read more...] about Addiction Rehab Is Broken. Can Technology Fix It?
