Nest Thermostat! Straight Baller!
Just got mine installed about 2 weeks ago! I love it! If you haven't gotten one or heard about it you need to get from underneath a rock!

So how much different really is it from a regular electronic thermostat? Is the learning function really that useful? Probably too early to see any difference on your electricity bill though

The programing function sounds like it's much more intuitive. ie. You go through your natural daily or seasonal rhythm and eventually you never have to adjust the thermostat. Granted weather patterns aren't predictable but this looks like it's a step in the right direction. Ascetically it's a slick solution.

That's a pretty cool little device. I remember reading about it when it was first released. Let us know if you see a difference in your bill.

I read about these a few months ago but also couldn't see the benefit over a regular programmable thermostat? It almost seems easier to set a unit and forget it, rather than having to adjust the temperature manually for a period of time before the thermostat 'learns' your comfort zone.
If you keep a regular schedule then I don't see how this would be a benefit (just program for 72 when you're home, cooler at night, and even cooler when you're not home), and if you keep a sporadic schedule then I don't see how the 'learning' aspect of the Nest unit would ever be able to cope?
The remote access aspect is cool, but I just don't see the need for the 'smart' 'learning' capabilities... It definitely looks cool though!

This was designed by some Apple dude. That's why it has a simple and clean look.
