Re: Surely by now...

Nets were not Google products when most people bought them. Unfortunately for them, Google bought Nest and the writing was on the wall. Google spent $3.2Billion on Nest and now they are throwing it in the bin. I hope the IP and tech they bought was worth it. On the other hand, maybe buying up companies for silly money and then shutting it all down a few years later is some sort of long game tax avoidance scheme. Or, on the gripping hand, maybe they just don't like other companies being successful so kill off those who might grow too big before they become to big to kill?
