Re: Smart is relative
I agree, let's see who can perform better on a power outtage. Computers 0 Medieval times 1. HA!

We should be looking for something more useful/ergonomic/complete not overcompensating/mini/complex 'smart' things...

Yes, even _you_ can enjoy this lovely multi-family home during our repossession/tax sale. Speak to a broker today!

Re: Smart is relative
Some of the tech solution providers would disagree with that assessment, I'm sure. To them, intelligence implies computing power. I like our take.

Re: Smart is relative
Good point, Mary. 'Smart' does not always have to translate or mean something related to being 'high tech' or advanced in that category. It could be smart simply in design.

Smart is relative
This cartoon got me thinking: Often the buildings of old (that is, pre-Industrial Revolution) were a lot "smarter" in terms of design and usage than what came later. That castle may have been a bit drafty, but it was safe and probably had a lot of practical features.

Having a lot of resources to squander doesn't necessarily make for better design.
