That’s your call, not mine.Apple, I believe, does not service the Nest device so don’t see how anyone would complain. As to buying on “Apple’s hype’, what ever does that mean? Apple sells lots of third party devices in is stores. Some stay on longer than others, so getting the pom-poms out over a thermostat seems a might odd..As to apps, taint porn is it? Apple is not vindictive like some, so can’t see them following your advice.
