1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I wanted to see how my battery use would change if I disabled Wi-Fi for the day. It's been off all day yet the only time it was actually off is when I was driving and had a smart action active which disabled Wi-Fi when connected over Bluetooth.

    See the pic below.

    Just fyi. Smart actions kept Wi-Fi on in the background even if I purposely set it off in the settings. There is a setting you can turn off in smart actions but then location services inside of smart actions will no longer work.

    I wish SA would figure out a way to do location based stuff without wifi, but I'm sure there's a battery benefit.

    Just FYI, we do have a dedicated Smart Actions section with a member of the actual SA team that checks in from time to time:
