Nifty Cool Gadgetry with a Purpose

Every time I have a desire to buy something, my mom’s voice suddenly rings in my head: “Know the difference between wants and needs.”

Yes, mother.

She has warned me about my spending/saving habits, not that I’m a profligate daughter to begin with anyways. Compared to other girls my age, I am very frugal, not going on shopping sprees or random visits to eateries in LA, Corona, or Rowland Heights. I think my life edges on being an ascetic sometimes. But….but….when it comes to really, really cool gadgets, like OpenPeak’s Energy Management Solutions device, I am a sucker. 0_O

Here are some of its key features:

  • Helps connects Public Utilities to the customer (us)
  • User-friendly, on-demand event notification of energy usage and pricing
  • Centralized user interface for thermostats and communication capabilities
  • Allows for downloadable applications and content including news, sports, weather, popular social networks, and instant messaging all on the same device.
  • Looks spiffy
  • Made with durable materials

Can you tell why I’m going gaga over this now? Clearly, this is more of a thing that I want rather than need. Desires can be overpowering oftentimes, but I’ll weigh the pros and cons of this before I actually do make a financial investment.

*sigh* I just wish the solar cells I work with look this outwardly and functionally attractive. There’s still a long way to go in that sector. Perhaps once I’m a rich millionaire in the solar cell research field, I can start purchasing these gadgets at a whim.

Or not…it never hurts to dream.

Onto GRE studying for the millionth time.

*END*

We support a variety of communication standards, including ZigBee and WiFi. A pivotal point of differentiation for OpenPeak is our ability to leverage our multimedia touch screen user interface and suite of downloadable applications and content including news, sports, weather, popular social networks, and instant messaging all on the same device.
