Nest made a splash yesterday with the announcement of its third generation Learning Thermostat. But despite its larger screen and new Farsight feature, the second generation model is the better buy for most people at its new, lower price of $199 (Orig. $249).

Nest did a great job of talking up how its third generation screen is a big deal, but in practice it probably won’t improve your life that much. Farsight sounds like it would be helpful, but how often do you really want to check in on your thermostat from 3-ft or more away or don’t have access to clock? Most thermostats live in hallways anyways, where you’re never more than a few feet away from its display. The other big improvement is Furnace Heads-Up that analyzes your furnace’s shutoff patterns, but that feature will also be rolling out to all previous generation Nest Thermostats later this year.

At the end of the day, it feels like Nest didn’t do enough to make the third generation Thermostat worth the extra $50 over its predecessor. That being said, you won’t always have this option since the second generation’s discounted price of $199 is only going to be around “while supplies last.” expand full story

Full-featured drones don’t come much smaller – or more fun – than the SKEYE Mini, which 9to5Toys Specials is offering now on pre-order for $65 shipped.

Despite being palm-sized, the SKEYE has six-axis gyroscopic stabilization and an on-board HD camera for a fully immersive flying experience to share with friends & family. With four coreless motors providing thrust, this tiny quadcopter is very maneuverable, and you can adjust the controls with two modes (beginner and expert). While newbies will enjoy the stability, experienced pilots can pull off flips and rolls.

These precise controls are also great when you want to capture the surrounding scenery from above, with the camera taking stills and 720p video. The drone also sports LED lights for flying at night, and it charges via the supplied USB cable.

  • Flies with precision-controlled steering
  • Includes beginner and advanced flight modes
  • Performs flips, barrel rolls and aerobatic tricks
  • Pulls off smooth maneuvers thanks to its high thrust and low weight
  • Boasts outstanding stability with 6-axis stabilization
  • Captures quality HD photos and video footage from high in the sky
  • Features 4 coreless motors
  • Embark on night flights with LED lights

Order now to get 34% off your pre-order, plus free shipping when the SKEYE Mini is released next month.

9to5Toys Specials currently has the KeySmart 2.0 Compact Key Organizer for $17.00 with free shipping. It reduces the bulk of your bunch of keys and eliminates that annoying jingle.

Rather than painfully squeezing your keys into your jeans, the KeySmart holds keys flat against each other. This means they take up half the room they normally would, and because they are held on a hinge, you can easily flip them out for use. With the included extender, the KeySmart has room for up to 10 standard-size keys. It is made (in the USA) from stainless steel and aircraft aluminum, but without the keys, it weighs just 0.1 oz.

  • Frame crafted from quality aluminum for lightweight body
  • Hardware milled from stainless steel for durability
  • Design made to fit 2× the keys in half the space
  • Accommodates most sizes of key
  • Made in the USA

You can order the KeySmart now to get 26% off the standard price.
