The big news story today is the purchase of Nest by Google, the deal will cost Google $3.2 billion, and the two Nest co-founders, Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers will join Google.
Nest makes smart thermostats and smart smoke detectors, and there seems to be some concern on whether Google will be able to track you around your home with Nest devices.
Nest posted a question and answer section on their blog post earlier, and Nest Co-founder, Tony Fadell had the following to say about data being shared by Google.
Will Nest customer data be shared with Google?
Of course this could possibly change in the future, as one positive thing for Google from the purchase of Nest, would be getting access to Nest data.
TechCrunch have reached out to both Google and Nest to get further clarification on whether any data, even anonymous data from Nest will be shared between the two companies, as yet neither has responded.
As soon as we get some clarification on exactly what Google and Nest intend to do with their data, now that they are part of the same company, we will let you guys know.
