Google Acquires Nest: Is It One Step Closer To Being 'Big Brother'?

Is Google one step closer to becoming Big Brother? The Internet giant is acquiring Nest, a company that makes smart thermostats and smoke alarms, for $3.2 billion in cash. Here's why Google bought Nest. By buying Nest, Google now has access to private information that was never under its purview. Nest addressed privacy concerns in a blog on its website : “Our privacy policy clearly limits the use of customer information to providing and improving Nest’s products and services," he writes. We know you entrust your homes and information to us and are committed to protecting that the same way we’ve always done.”
