 While everyone fawns over Google's purchase of Nest, there's this little piece on whether the Nest thermostat might provide a means for the NSA (or someone else) to go snooping in your home. I'm not so sure that this purchase will work in Google's favor as much as one might have thought from all the hoopla. Google may learn some useful things from Nest, but trying to justify the purchase on that basis may be a stretch. This reminds me in some respects of Cisco's purchase of Stratacom back during the dot-com boom (you remember, when webvan was going to put Wegman's, Safeway, and Whole Foods out of business).
