Nope, that script doesn't accomplish what mine does. Mine allows you to generate a CSV of working valid codes using browser automation.

Can someone post their already used code for science?
If you can crack Google's code, I'm sure you will get a job that will pay to buy the factory in China that is spitting the Google Home Hubs for a few bucks.

By the way, I received mine, its cool but feels very crippled. There is no real interface and no home page. No icons, no app store, not even a camera. WTF? I thought it does video calls? No? Basically its a spying device Google is putting inside your home to listen to you under the pretext of advertising but with a much larger agenda than "targeting" my advertising. Seriously, how "accurate" do my ads need to be that Google needs to record and save for ever, every sentence I say near or type on my phone?

It answers some questions, had issues connecting with Ecobee (probably because Google is pushing Nest) and it never connected to my Samsung Home Hub for unknown error reason so I cant control my lights. The screen is very nice, on par with new phones, the sound has a really nice base and the device, although very small, its like a small TV in my kitchen and I can have it play things.

BUT I WISH IT HAD ANDROID ON IT so I could run lots of apps and have it open ,y Directv Now or Amazon app to show me stuff. Google must hate its own Android, it doesnt put it on its chromecast, chromebooks, Android TVs, laptops and almost no tablets. It has a very crippled version of Youtube, that does not look or resemble any YouTube apps I use on a daily basis on various devices.

For $99 I would buy a NORMAL ANDROID (not crippled android) tablet and have it sit in my kitchen with Google Assistant turned on. that would work with ANY app from Google Play.

those are not "Google employees". they are just staffs, independent contractors hired by marketing agencies that are contracted by Google.
Yep, the Google Employees were sitting inside secret rooms throughout the place with lots of monitors and CCTVs watching the show and crowd. I saw some of them when a door opened for a "real Google" employee to come out and try to help me find out why my code never showed up.

Attended CES and visited Google's tent. I was able to get one of these for free, delivered and demo-ed. The coupon code was a lengthy and unique code. Seamless, pretty cool instrument that I am testing and using in the kitchen (and networked with my home furnace via WEMO. Works like a wonder and beats having a contractor come out and "troubleshoot" my furnace on/off problem for a couple hundred buck$.. A $20 WEMO plug took care of the phantom fan intermediate operation issue and can turn it on/off via Google Home Hub or by my cellphone.. I think it could be worth the $100 (retail) at big box stores....

But what do you really expect, especially for "free?"
