Of course, if I had one it'd make shopping super easy, since I just wouldn't be able to afford to buy anything Tongue

Totally blew my mind that they have fridges there that are $6000+....stoves in the $4500 range... I had hoped to walk in the door and find a decent SS fridge for $1000 and for fun would pair it up and grab a new matching stove, spending $1500 for both....nope....basic SS fridge is my spending budget alone and if I want a gas range it's another $1500.....doesn't include taxes or delivery or in the case of water connection, etc...the supplies - I can do the water but need to have a pipe fitter for the gas range...screw it, will just get the fridge otherwise there won't be any vacation funds for my yearly fall south get-away!

There do exist "smart" refrigerators, but AFAIK all of them are WI-FI only. I wonder if what you saw was, in fact, the nut that houses the water hose for the dispensers? BTW, if you get one with a water connection, do be sure it is designed for changing filters without shutting the water off. It never crossed my mind while shopping, but it's an important convenience.

Egg, I said I was OLD, not ancient and senile! Smile When I return to the store I will snap a pic of it... Smile

I agree that I don't want any more of my personal data being shared than I have to....as is my smart phone, my digital camera, my vehicle, all transmitting data to big brother....they even have mods that are blue tooth.... Sad

hahahaha... I'm sorry, brother. My bad. Thanks for humoring my paranoid streak, too.

Today I learned that owning a TFV8 is like owning a high end rare sports car when it comes to parts and expense!

Why do mods have Bluetooth?  I'd like to see how remote vaping is done.

Hi Bibs - this is not the 'bluetooth' you think it is. I refer you to the 'kit' thread - it is a disease caused by allowing your tanks to live in sin[Image: smile.gif].

I also suspect that my tanks are not just cavorting with other mods, but also not practicing proper hygiene before switching juice.  The thread mixing is my own issue.

If I recall, you can use an app on your phone with the xcube2 to change the LED bar color.

Hi Chuck - as long as it is only grazing and not digging - they can go to quite a depth and length and cause havoc.
