Yes, the thermostats still have ZigBee radios. The first ones were TI chips while the new ones are Silicon Labs (formerly Ember) chips. The smoke alarms have them too.

Forget the fire codes. If you lock the shooter in a room, you might also lock a lot of potential victims in the room with him. Say someone enters a packed cafeteria and fires some shots. No matter what, people will instinctively run to the exits once they realize what's going on. If the doors are open, they'll have a chance to get away. But, if the doors locked, everyone will pile up near the exits and be trapped. Now, the shooter has a lot of targets clumped together.
You can't be American, because you're apparently unaware...
Let me stop you right there. You must not know Americans, because unawareness, of our own history and so many other things, is one of our hallmarks. The fact that the signing of the Declaration of Independence wasn't promptly followed by the "shot heard round the world," or that the war dragged on for years and wasn't particularly popular while it was raging, or that our Constitution was our second attempt at self government is not something people know. The details of our history just aren't taught, or aren't taught well at least, so we end with people having a weak grasp of the highlights and not understanding or even being aware of the rest.
Hue bulbs speak ZigBee, not Wi-Fi. Communication between the bridge and the lights is done with a mix of the ZigBee Home Automation and ZigBee Light Link application profiles on a ZigBee PRO mesh network using an IEEE 802.15.4 MAC layer. The bridge is an IP-to-ZigBee gateway, but there's no direct IP connectively to the bulbs.
her support of the endless wars she supports
This is why I only vote for candidates who have pledged to support only the wars they don't support.
I develop applications for BlackBerry and I've talked to RIM about what restrictions corporate users will see. According to RIM, only 40% of BlackBerry users are on BlackBerry Enterprise Networks (BES) and over 90% of BES installations use the default settings. The default BES settings do not impose any restrictions on the device.
