Always liked Google and thought if anyone could build a connected home it would be them. Nest just happened to come along and do it a bit better. Having access to Google's vast resources can only mean good things for Nest and their crew. Keeping the CEO and Co-Founders around is the best thing they could have done with this deal.

I have doubts that being part of Google will improve Nest.

The management might be the same, but now they serve at Google's pleasure. That tells me not to bet that Nest's roadmap isn't going to radically shift.

Google has definitely made the right call keeping Nest's leadership infrastructure the same. After all, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Am I the only one who thinks Google is trying to become owner of the world?

No, but they're just proxies for their overlords, the NSA, in that agency's quest for world data domination.

I thought they were already the owners...
