Google Just Snapped Up At Least 100 Former Apple Employees With Its Acquisition of Nest

Google's acquisition of Nest didn't just snag it Tony Fadell, the 'father of the iPod'. Nest employed at least another 100 former Apple employees, according to Quartz.

Founded by Tony Fadell, the “father of the iPod,” Nest has managed to peel at least 100 people off of Apple, his former employer, according to a search of LinkedIn (of course, given that LinkedIn data is user-driven, there could be more Nest employees who’ve made this switch, or LinkedIn users who haven’t updated their profiles). From executives to product designers, there are surely things these exceptional people could be doing for Google.

Googles new slogan. If we can't beat 'em, just buy 'em. What a bunch of absolute losers. And to think Steve Jobs actually helped them start up. No original thought will ever emanate from the turd brains at google.

What concerns me about this turn-of-events, is whether or not my NEST equipment will continue to be iOS user friendly or will succumb to the stupid little OS war between Apple and Google. My NEST thermostat and CO/Fire monitor were incredibly easy to install using my iPhone and my home WiFi network. I wouldn't want this sacrificed to bring in Android platforms as well. I also don't want Google snooping on when I'm home as I'm sure they will so they can sell my comings/goings to their advertisers.

True true. Ads ads ads. And if NSA snoops too who cares? :)
