Android Central 168: Google's new $3.2 billion thermostat


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...

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.

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