3.0 out of 5 stars Arabic import, 6 May 2014
It is toothpaste and works as described, only strange thing is that they are Arabic grey imports and not the European boxes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Thermostat, 6 May 2014
When I saw Nest launch in the USA I was really keen to see it launch in the UK. As someone who works from home and is out and about a lot, I wanted something that would adapt and allow me to remotely control it. I got exactly that!

The disadvantage? Compared to the Heatmiser, and other more traditional systems, the Nest doesn't have a second relay to control hot water so you have to use a legacy system with it. I would have preferred to replace my legacy system not augment it.

I can't yet say if it will save me energy yet, but I am very much more in control and the energy chart looks positive.
PCTV Systems DVB-T picoStick Tv Tuner - WORLD's SM&hellip by PCTV
I've bought two of these previously for various projects, I like to keep one in my laptop bag just in case. I am a professional dealing with TV and I use this with Linux mostly, apart from having to download the firmware from Kernel Labs this tiny thing works great!

You obviously need to use it with a real antenna, any of the small wires that people try to use for watching TV won't work, but the same is true for an TV receiver.
