Google and the Internet of Things

IMO an interesting read from Quartz. regarding Google's entry into the Internet of Things:

Why Nest will be bigger for Google than Android

Nest is a company that makes smart smoke detectors and smart thermostats. That’s neat, but that gadget business alone is not worth $3.2 billion, the price Google just paid for Nest. There are a bunch of reasons Google was willing to give Nest’s investors a 20x return on their investment, including its pool of talent. But the full scope of the most important reason of all has been absent from most of press coverage.

Nest is Google’s first major acquisition in what will some day be a trillion-dollar market: The “internet of things.” The internet of things is a catch-all for the movement to connect every single electronic gadget we own to the internet, while also filling the world with inexpensive, always-on sensors.

To make the internet of things happen, we’re going to have to also fill the world, and especially our homes and businesses, with hubs designed to wirelessly communicate with all those smart toasters, smart lights, etc., while also coordinating their actions.

Thanks Henry...  I'm going to do both work and Home.  Is Bing connected with Microsoft?

@ William Deveraux

Might want to review your settings with Microsoft....Of course if you trust MS not to use your data in any way that they choose and or directed I guess it is rather mute...

This is a screen capture from a Windows 8.1 setup...

I'm a little leary about trusting Google and anything they're involved with.  I even switched to Bing.... which may be a little better at keeping my profile as my profile not shared.  Just careful I guess.
