I use my iPad in the kitchen a lot when I’m referring to an online recipe or playing music from my iTunes while cooking. This is the perfect place to store it and be able to easily view and access it. Heck, this also turns it into a small flat screen TV! There is also an optional wall mount kit, so you can put it on a wall or cabinet instead of the fridge.
Nest: The Learning Thermostat. It programs itself and adjusts to save energy when you're away. Plus, you can connect Nest to Wi-Fi to change the temperature from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet.
