re: Smart Switches for apple home kit - CidCock
[quote] The HomePods just must come down in price to like 150$ permanently. [/quote] I originally bought the homepod because of compatibility with Apple Music. I still use it and the sound is great, but I wish they had a cheaper Amazon echo style puck that I could connect to my stereo from w...

re: Smart Light questions - CidCock
[quote]Can it control the hue bulbs? It picked up all of ge link and Ikea bulbs. I don't use the wink hub anymore.[/quote] It is my understanding that you have to have a hue bridge to control any hue lights. And the hue hub is little help other than that. I'd love to go all hue to make it eas...

Smart Light questions - CidCock
Hey everyone, I've got a few hue bulbs and really enjoy them and am thinking of adding a few more smart items to my setup. I am looking at replacing my recessing lights with LED fixtures and am scared off by the price. I am looking at the Sylvania lightify recessed lights which will require some ...

re: How much do you need to make to justify a 1K+ watch? - CidCock
Some good thoughts in here. I don't know the answer, but I will say this. I have 2 "nice" watches, an Omega Speedmaster and Rolex Explorer. Some may think it's a dumb thing to spend money on and maybe they are right. BUT, I could sell either today if I needed to and I drive a 2008 4Runner. A g...

re: Cyber Monday Deals: Philips Hue? - CidCock
[quote]I bought 10 boxes of hue white ambiance bulbs on clearance at Home Depot recently. $38.03 per box plus $3.80 in tax. I've got 4 that I have either gifted or sold. I'm willing to sell a few of the remaining 6 for what I paid ($41.83) plus shipping if interested. I've done some trading in the p...

Laptop Question - CidCock

re: Another OT watch thread: first luxury watch - CidCock
[quote]Man, my dream watch at the moment is no doubt a Omega Speedmaster. I’m pretty frugal, but I’ll definitely own one of these in the next couple years, but probably with a leather or nylon band over the bracelet. [/quote] I love my speedy, but I didn’t buy it on bracelet. Wish I had it, super...

re: Best iPhone 11 deals - CidCock
[quote]If you put in on eBay/Swappa you'll get around $400-$450 quickly. This is a perk of getting iPhones, the resale values of older models. Trading it to Best Buy is about $275 right now. If you don't like to deal with the hassle of selling privately thats a $275 Best Buy gift card toward your pu...

Best iPhone 11 deals - CidCock
Looking at upgrading my wife's 8Plus to an 11. Like the better camera on the pro, but can't justify the additional cost (at least not yet). I plan on selling the 8plus, but trade is an option if I can get similar value. I am on ATT, they always do the BOGO, but I'm not looking to add another ...

re: Get another iPhone 6s Plus or upgrade to XR or 11? - CidCock
[quote]I'm probably about to get the 11 Pro myself. Considering our phones are pretty much the only cameras we have (we do have a camera, but it's been ages since we pulled it out for anything), I want all of the features and capability in my phone camera I can get. We have three kids, and there is ...

re: Get another iPhone 6s Plus or upgrade to XR or 11? - CidCock
Bump here. My wife has an 8+ that I think I can get $350 for, so I may go ahead and upgrade her. Is she going to notice a difference on the 11 pro vs the 11. I'm leaning 11; however, she takes a ton of pictures of our kids. She isn't a professional photographer - is the difference going to b...
