The Nest will pay for itself in a year or two and save 30% off your energy bill… Wired reports on Tony Fadell’s sexy new gadget:

How Small And Local Businesses Can Benefit From Localmind How Small And Local Businesses Can Benefit From Localmind
Localmind 1.5 went live today in the app store with three of the app’s most-requested features–ones that will only help local businesses reach out to potential customers.
