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 totally think Nest is more appropriate for Google rather than Apple because Google thrives off of info and that's what Nest will give them via their huge datasets.  What I want Apple to do here is let us know what side of the Home Automation are they going to come down on.  Zwave, Zigbee or 6LowPAN or some proprietary format of their own creation?   As much disdain as I have for the grandiose "Internet of Things" hyperbole being spouted off daily I do think this year is...
Fck Square  Dwolla is the purchase you want if you're talking financial transactions. 
"Innovation is in our DNA"     Could have fooled me Tim. 
Google's play here isn't the ads but the immense amount of data that  Nest's cloud was gathering.      Look for Google to make some more acquisitions within the home automation/green tech  space and leverage the huge opportunity they have here. 
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. 
Until you actually need to get work done. Then you grab your Mac
It's nice but a bit premature.     Right now home automation is still in its infancy.   The reliable stuff is coming from you Nexia, Alarm.com and other subscription services.   Once the market has expanded and there are more solutions that actually work then voice enabling them will be powerful.   I'm still not seeing many comprehensive "roll your own"  HA setups.
