  1. My suggestions are: Avoid buyers who calculate valuations by pennyweights (it’s like they are using a strange language to obscure the
    poor value of their offers. In this method the gold
    owner can get certificate of ownership of gold holding, instead of actually storing the physical gold.
    This is far lower than the present premiums on physical
    bullion which have skyrocketed during the current precious metals dearth.

    FYI, It doesn’t use your WiFi?

    Don’t forget the annual $10, or one time $50, internet connectivity fee. It’s still much less than the Nest, but not quite as big of a difference as it first appears.
