Google Acquires Nest for $3.2 Billion

My initial reaction was, No! After reading several interviews with Tony Fadell and now understanding Nest will operate as a separate company, it seems like a good move for Nest. They will now have the funds and infrastructure to release innovate products more quickly.

The biggest news here is not the acquisition but the fact that Tony Fadell, father of the iPod, is now a Google employee.
