"connected home sections didn't exist at retail"

I don't agree with Fadell's history re-write that "connected home sections didn't exist at retail" prior to Nest. Home automation products like X-10 (including phone bridges as the period-equivalent of "connected") were sold from the 1980s at Radio Shack in the USA/Canada (and I presume Tandy in the UK).
