    That's a pretty negative view for something you have zero hands on time with isn't it? The Consumer Electronic convention you mention is where people display all kinds of products that are going to be released but don't have pricing yet. You don't see concept cars at an auto show with a price either. Maybe wait till it comes out till you judge this thing...lol.

    lol.....even though my name doesn't end with Vandiver and I am not from Missouri show me the beef. Apologies if I offended @The Black Thumb Gardener , @Miriam I asked me a question, to which I responded with my opinion. Now if you want some really cool and useful high tech in your garden, check out some of the Hunter irrigation water sensors. http://www.sprinklerwarehouse.com/Hunter-Sprinkler-ET-Sensors-p/et-system.htm. You can even hook it up to a drip system.
