A sort of essay in the form of a string of tweets (collected by Paul Mison):
It’s quite simple. People invited Nest into their houses.
It might in reality be an acquisition, but to some people it will
feel instead like an annexation.
I think Google should be concerned about the number of people who are unhappy about this acquisition. Google used to be a company most people trusted; what I’m seeing as I read reactions to this Nest acquisition is that that’s no longer true.
