Just be glad that it wasn't Microsoft that was doing the acquiring.
Should be interesting to see what comes of this acquisition..

When Google bought SageTv, they ripped a couple key things from it for their attempted cable service, and then killed any further innovation. For that reason alone, I detest Google. Its a shame, since I have a NEST, and really like it. It can only go downhill from here. Maybe they will make you watch a commercial before adjusting the temperature.

The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

History has shown that most innovative companies fail to continue to deliver innovation when they become part of large corporations.
But Google could be different as they do demonstrate innovation. Time will tell.
The valuation is pretty interesting.

Call me paranoid, but I'm not interested in having GooGoo monitoring,
or worse, controlling anything in my home. Thanks but no thanks.
