What got Nest purchased was 1.1 million homes sending their data up to Nest's Cloud. When Fadell talks about scaling the product he's talking about turning on my Nest products and gather more lucrative data. This data is Google's sweet nectar and potentially worth Billions. If Google wanted IoT devices they could have purchased 20 companies for less money but most of these companies would have little to no dataset to start mining.
