I’m excited to announce that we’ve agreed to acquire Nest Labs.  Nest’s founders, Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers, have built a tremendous team that we are excited to welcome into the Google family.  They’re already delivering amazing products you can buy right now--thermostats that save energy and smoke/CO alarms that can help keep your family safe.  It’s amazing to see how they have taken important but unloved devices and made them beautifully simple and useful.  We are excited to bring great experiences to more homes in more countries and fulfill their dreams!

Making ugly, vital household products into lovable must-haves is a noble mission :D This is good news. Thank you.
 
Robots selling smoke alarms. I got it!. Smart move Google.
 
Getting closer to controlling my whole house from my google account. :)
 
OK Glass, make it 68 degrees when I get home tonight.
 
Just bought a nest last week. Im a much happier person because of it. I could never figure out the old ones.
 
Awesome +Larry Page! Through thick and thin Google is an exciting venture to witness. Thank you for that!

Nice acquisition Larry, will +SmartThings be the next move ?
Sen Hou
 
Another big deal.
 
Very smart!  It's a nice marriage.  Getting G in more products in the home will lead to even tighter Home Automation.  I'm sure there are more neat things that will be coming from the team (Security is next I would guess after jumping through all the legal guidelines).  Then Google can offer free monitoring maybe.  At least locally to your person.  Then home A/V integration.  Just hold off on that one though G! I'm an AMX/Crestron control programmer! I don't need the competition. :)

World domination one step at a time.
 
Give this company the creative leeway and funding they need and they will revolutionize homes around the world!
 
First Boston Dynamics and now THIS :O?!?!

A very wise and beneficial move!
 
Google steps in home automation finally ;)
 
Android @ Home doing a comeback?! (:

I hope this means that it will work with Google Now so you can set the thermostat with your voice and view indoor temperature along with the current weather (outdoor temperature).
 
Congrats!  Now let's get these bad boys all #IPv6  enabled, and in my house, stat!  ;oD

Nicely done. Just throw money at them and make them do the whole house just make it affordable somehow please. 
 
all bases belong to...google??  j/kin   Now add wireless on the Nest!!
 
I'm not going to pretend to understand why they've purchased Nest (especially for as much as they will).. however Nest is a fashionable purchase as was Motorola.. Hopefully this bring fruition to more awesome, cool and especially useful technology into our everyday lives. Kudos.
 
Great opportunity to bring house automation a little step closer all under your Google account, similar to building automation which optimices every ambient aspect with energy consumption as a priority. This seems great news 
 
Hey, +Larry Page You can acquire me for a lot less. I'll personally set your thermostat and if I'm still alive when you return home, chances are there is no Smoke and the CO2 levels are acceptable. I'll sell my soul to Google for a mere £10 million (+benefits and access to all new Googlicious tech.)

Smart Air Registers Please, something to make the NEST Thermostat even smarter.  give homes low cost zoning. +Larry Page 
 
Great, can't wait for your company to use it as an excuse to churn out more vaporware.
 
Android thermostats? 
 
Hope you'll support the existing products for some time... Just bought 3 of the Nest Protect lately.

Now I am interested in purchasing. Good job!
 
All hail the Smartgrid and Demand Side Management 
 
Cold? Search for local restaurants by temperature. Filter by "not currently on fire".
 
I'm gonna buy my new home within 2 months... i hope i'll be able to make a perfect domotic home, by my own... i will use Android, of course! ;)
 
I'm excited to hear! :D LOL
 
Android devices, Android cars, Android homes what next :-) 👍

This is an exciting development. Looking forward to the future. 
 
Would be nice if you offer open apis so that I can integrate my Google account with my +ecobee. There is a definite need for open standards in this area.
 
This is amazing news. Congratulations to the Nest team for their hard work and amazing vision! 
 
Hopefully you will open up the API so that it can be integrated with the other home automation products out there, like +Smartthings and Zigbee protocol devices from many manufacturers.  

What the space really needs is a standard...  Many of them use the same physical interface but can't share data with each other.  

You should buy up +Ubi too, for the voice interface with the user.
 
Google now told me that Larry Page is the CEO of Google. It seems that is true. +Larry Page
 
Does this mean our thermostats can now send email to our Google+ profiles?
 
add a 3g 'droid board to it and you've got the whole ISP market wrapped. nice
 
Hope to be able to install a Nest device also here in Italy! Great project!
 
cha chai aamac.. path karath jaldi... :)
keep it up...
 
I predict John Gruber, who loves nest, will suddenly begin hating nest in 3...2....
 
#Awesome. Days of overpriced Home Automation equipment are now numbered. Here comes Android integration and easy customization.
 
Another product that will soon vanish after being bought out
 
Laree Pagee.  Lareeeeee Pagaaaaaaay
 
Congrats on the acquisition 
 
Good to know that small companies can become part of a large family such as Google and not be the odd cousin you only meet at weddings and funerals - have family outings with them
 
Great news! Thank you for everything you!
 
And the March to world domination continues. All hail Google! 
 
I have been using nest for the past two years and its truly smart claimant manager. I never have to worry about adjusting the thermostat and saved tons of money on my electrical bill. Congratulation +Larry Page and God bless. 
 
Larry and team helped NEST prove it's marketability!  I love this move and hope the best for both Google & Nest :)  Hip Hip Hurray!
 
Can't wait to see where this goes! I've always been interested in Nest products, now I'm very excited!
 
Congratulation.
Good wishes,
 
hope to see google expand this into a full range IoT company
 
Great. Now Google will be spying on the use of my thermostat and smoke alarms...and selling that data to who knows...
 
Congrats. I m sure these devices will be linked to my Google profile in no time. Can't wait.
 
Wow!Welcome them.thanks...Larry page..have a good day.
 
Congrats. Hope you take the tech to the next level

Gah - and there goes any hope I had that the Nest Thermostat would come to the UK!  

Given that we still don't have hotword detection on Android or Chrome and no opportunity to join the Glass Explorer Program I can see the 'Stat staying exclusively US for the foreseeable.
 
+Thomas Mitchell Eventually they will take the control too for you ... next release/upgrade! "New: Do you accept ..."
 
Now Google knows when we are at home. And how we feel the climate. And how much we spend for heating. And...
 
Now let's bring those price points down!
 
This is actually preatty cool! Can't wait to see android integration!
 
Hey +Larry Page .  I don't suppose you could ask them to release their thermostat in the UK, could ya?  Thank you.
 
OK Google house!
Stop torching the furniture.

Brilliant acquisition. Can't wait to see what comes of it.

Amazing price for nestlabs but I Think it s the Team also
 
Google, Apple, and Microsoft arw buying all the smaller companies that's killing innovation if you asked me
 
I have an idea and I want to show it to you.
 
+Kervens Ixe they used to say that to succeed in tech and remain independent, you needed a mediocre idea, cuz if the idea was good, it'd get noticed microsoft or intel or oracle, and one of the giants would stomp you.  now there are new giants but...
 
Interesting, I'm sure there is more to this then we think. Possibly the ability to consistently have connected sensors log our lives to provide both a service to the end user and value of data for corporate innovations. I think this is a good move.
 
Smoke alarm that talks. Thermostat that I can set with a web browser. I see Google's interest, but I cannot see why I should share it.

I comment on this page because I think I have found a new idea to create a totaly new field of internet service.
If you have any intresting ,pls contact to me!
 
It would be amazing if Google had university! 
 
Thermostats and smoke alarms fulfill my dreams?

google can change non profitable persuits into profitable one good job sir
 
Go Larry- take no counsel of your naysayers, and make my house into a Google enabled sensor filled smart voice activated internet of things. 
 
Congrats. Why not come to medical services also and build a great hospital for the care of relatively poor and needy too?
 
Do you guys have any interest in medical devices? We make spirometers and ECGs at www.advancedmedicalengineering
 
Gps orienting it with solar tracking to heat more on side in shade and not on sunny side could be an efficiency grabber, especially when there are a lot of windows :)
 
Hopefully they will still come out with a windows 8 app, come to think of it when will Google stop being bitches and develop apps for windows 8 and phone 8 as well.
 
Big Brother is getting even bigger - and the Stasi, ahm pardon NSA nightmare continues.

So in order to be allowed to change the temperature one degree Fahrenheit on your Nest/Google thermostat you will have to force one person to sign up to the failed social network, Google Plus?  Awesome fascism!
 
OK Google, warm up my house when I get within 3 miles by car.   Nice.

if i write you a poem will you ask the google fiber people to nicely bring it to my town.
 
I think Google should invest in li-fi technologies. That is a next logical step towards a smart home/smart environments.

you might wish to put MORE LINKS so folks can contact you. An hour of searching sites plus an hour trying to get thru your switchboard and I am stuck with this post...
2. I have a man who has won Intl. awards for technology, has U.S. and overseas contracts, & revenue; expanding fast. I suggested he meet your team when he comes to the U.S. and this region in mid March. Please hit me thru gmail if of interest.
Thanks. Cheers.
 
Dear Larry!
I am working in an equation that predicts the behavior of people at levels ever measured. This equation only makes sense for companies with large servers as GOOGLE.
Through this equation, I had ideas to create new devices. I believe that this device will change the world I imagined. As the equation that significantly increase the sales of different companies.
I tried to contact GOOGLE, but I got no answer.
I would love an answer or  an opportunity to work in this equation and these devices together with you.
Hugs!

Hello, Larry!
Most people in the world, his research interests on the Internet through specific sites, where we found more and more information that will investigate other sites ... And always waste time copying the text word by opening a page + Google + pasting the word + and finding information. Very time consuming! You could invent a way to open up a new page of Google, now with the information that interests us (word, portions of text, image), any text we were reading on the web! What do you think?? It's great!

Very respectfully, we, Venezuelans all, please ask to make an appeal to world leaders to pay attention to the sad situation that our country is going Venezuela. They are killing our young people fighting for a different future, are killing our young people for thinking differently, it is an unequal struggle, it is a battle of ideas against bullets, repression, torture, persecution, violating our human rights. This is devastating.
Venezuela ordered an SOS to stop attacks from the government to the students of our country, we pray that the eyes of the world to witness this unequal struggle.

Google maps will not change the address of my business and we loose custom as it will not recognize the pedestrian walk way after many times trying to contact google in london with no answer of the phones this issue is still a problem and has been for months now 
 
I doubt you'll read this but Google is my heart and soul. I am  going to college with aspirations to be like you guys. I live and breath for innovation. I love Google for this. The only reason I continue school for computer science is so that I can hope one day to be like you all at Google. Thanks for everything you guys do. Can't wait for glass and the nexus watch to come out I will be getting them to accompany my nexus 5.
 
Sir,

I sent you an email. Please have a look at it. Its not a sales pitch, nor spam/marketing. Its a genuine mail from a genuine fan :)
 
I am so disappointed in Google right now.  This is the worst company worst that I've ever dealt with. I have been trying to get my Nexus 7 (which is defective & still under warranty) replaced for a week and all the representatives did was LIE LIE LIE!  I will never purchase anything from Google ever again. Not to mention that customer complaints have to be made via email to a call center rep and then forwarded to someone in a higher office.... Talk about customer service 
 
I agree with Leslie. This has been so hard to contact anyone and get an answer to problems that we are having. I am the President of Student Government for Rogue Community College in Medford, OR. We created the XPunch accts so that we could show how much work we actually do for our students and therefore we needed gmail accts. Unfortunately some of our past members put their names on those accts and now we are unable to change those names and we would like to use the position names rather than someones actual names I spent an hour call every number I could find for google, I have sent emails to fix the issues and have heard nothing back. I think we may have to change email accts and get a time clock rather than using Google. Obviously customer service is not one of your strong points. There is no interpersonal communication with this company and it's very sad because I have used google for as long as I can remember but sorry I can't run like this.
 
Can I have my Adsense account back. I was click bombed.
 
Hi Larry ! I come up with an idea for Google to compete with Facebook but I don't know how to reach you. I myself do not want to use many online services but because my friends they all use Facebook so I have to. Now I really do not want to waste my time on it. Hope to hear from you.
 
I need help getting back. To Google. For my server 
 
Hi Lary we could use a messenger like f/bk and msn had, worse thing they did when they stopped the msn messenger: 
 
Being an avid Google user, I'm always purposeful in taking the time to educate myself on the meaning of their many different doodles ("fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists,") even on holidays and anniversaries that I was not aware of! Well, today is #WorldDownSyndromeDay and I was looking forward to the Google logo change honoring our friends and loved ones who happen to have an extra chromosome. So, my question of the day is...where is the #WDSDDoodleGoogle?
 
Yes it should be on, put yourself a post and it will get lots of votes , someone else did that. 
 
Larry Page,

I am really disappointed with Google. Google Map could have easily posted life satellite pictures for everyone to help search the malaysian aircraft MH370. You owe it to the people. 
 
If you. Are a relative of someone on it I feel for you and pray, otherwise I think to be honest it's best we all wait till whatever is made official 
 
Please don't mess up NEST like you killed google maps... Seriously - I have to bing now because g-maps won't even work on my computer anymore it's been screwed up so bad.
 
Dear Mr. Larry,
Can I get a favour from you?
Please reply me. I'm waiting to your reply.
