In January 2014, because one piece of news NEST became the star of the smart home industry overnight. Reported that “Google announced that they had reached purchase agreement with smart home company Nest Labs, which was founded by ” the father of the iPod “Tony Dell, all assets of NSET would be purchased by $3.2 billion in cash, predict that the deal will be completed within a few months “.
