Nest owes a lot of it's attention to the fact that Fadell and Rogers were ex Apple Execs.   If they don't have that as a marketing piece the road they travel becomes much harder.    Nests technology is great but don't fool yourself into thinking that there isn't competition.    Netatmo Therm -  Neatly ties in to their weather station    Centralite Pearl Therm -  Will be using Zigbee Home Automation 1.2    Tado Therm - UK's best shot at a Nest...
I wonder if Google with do anything with Nest property myenergy.com 
Exactly   ADT sends me a placard every single month about their HA/Security services.  I'm surprised AT&T isn't pounding down my door along with Comcast.   This field is going to rapidly heat up as the big companies align themselves.   Nest wasn't going to survive without offering Subscription Services and a lot more products.   Smart move from them was to sell.

I'm pretty excited for what 4K is going to mean for the iMac lineup.    The 4K displays announced at CES '14  under 32" were more affordable than I thought they would be.  It's totally feasible for Apple to deliver a 4K iMac with a 27" or larger display within the next two release  cycles.    Not only is 4K a book for resolution but Rec2020 should yield better color as well.         Now if software could just catch up to the hardware.
