I was reading your March ;;;; Tech
Connection [“Home smart home”] and want to
mention something important that was left out.
Considering the vulnerability to hacking, I think
any mention of smart home devices should
include a prompt for reviewing and setting up a
secure connection. Most people leave the default
setup, which has led to breaches in the past.
The Costco Connection is
mailed monthly to all current
Primary Executive members.
You can change your subscrip-

DEBATE GOES ON
In response to the March debate, “Is private financing of public infrastructure a good idea?”
I enjoyed the [cover story] in the March issue
about the unique dwelling members [“A place
they call home”]. I have one question for them
all: Where in their tiny home do they fit the
;;-count boxes of tissue, the ;;-pack of paper
towels, the ;.;-pound co;ee container, the ;; rolls
of TP, etc.? I had to out;t my basement with several ;-foot shelving units to handle the bulk sizes.

NO It’s a Trojan horse for private companies to
take over public services, which are eventually
run into the ground because [the companies] only
care about [making a] pro;t.

YES Absolutely! What’s wrong with taking the
Adopt-a-Highway program to the next level? Our
infrastructure is second-rate; if private investors
are the only hope for improvement, then let’s
get out of their way.
In love with Ove
Just got my March Costco Connection and saw
a familiar title, A Man Called Ove [“A slow suc-cess”]. Read it; loved it. I loved the way the author
would give us the backstory on the life of Ove, his

All ads indicate whether a
product is available in the ware-
house, on Costco.com or both.
Products are scheduled to be
available during The Connection’s
month of publication and are
noted as in warehouse “early
in month” (1st to 10th), “mid-
month” (11th to 21st) or “late in
month” (22nd to 31st). Shop early
in the month for the best selec-
tion of seasonal items. Costco.
com carries many of the prod-
ucts available at the warehouses,
and offers thousands of addi-
tional items, including line exten-
sions and supplemental
products. Prices are usually not
listed because they have not
been finalized at the time of
printing and may vary from one
part of the country to another
due to shipping costs. We hope
members know to check Costco
first when comparison shopping.
To keep prices low, Costco does
not offer a telephone service
allowing members to call in for
prices or product availability.
