Honeywell is suing Nest Labs.

For what? For making a product that isn't butt ugly and takes years to program to your liking only to have it fail completely one month later?

From the link in the post above:

If Honeywell invented all these cool features, why didn’t it make something of them? Last year an executive told GigaOm that Honeywell long ago created a thermostat that learned user’s preferences the way Nest does, but it abandoned that project because it believed people wanted to program their thermostats. (It’s true—programming my thermostat is my favorite activity in the world, right after taking out the garbage, shaving, and researching nanny taxes!)

Re: The Nest Thermostat. I'm going to get one.
I just installed mine today and I love the fact that I can control it from my iPhone or adjust the temperature without having to get up from my computer. I am curious how much money it will save me over time while it learns my patterns?
