What post-CES lull? Google bought Nest and its excellent connected-home products for $3.2 billion. Plus Richard Devine checks in from Europe's Moto X launch. You still probably shouldn't drive with Google Glass, and we answer more of your questions, live!

Except try to sell me a $129 smoke detector that either uses more power or has shorter battery life. There must be 8 smoke detectors in my house...

yankeesusa says:

Yea, $129 is high. But the features on it are great. Instead of a regular loud beep it actually tells you why the alarm is going off and where in the house. To me that can save your life even more

But Google didn't price the Nest products when they came out, they just bought Nest. We don't know what the price would have been had Google controlled the product from day 1.

The mark of the beast will come from Google.

If that's the case, then sell your Note 3.

2:58 - iOS notification tone, wtf?

Pretty much all of us has an iPhone or iPad as well. Because the best way to do our jobs is to be aware of all platforms

I also often put the iOS "ding ding" and "tritone" on my Android phones. Flame on :P .
