Tony Fadell Leaves Google

Tony Fadell, known as the father of the iPod and was the creator of the Nest Learning Thermostat, has decided to leave Google (or Alphabet). He announced this yesterday on the official Nest blog. Fadell noted that now was the right time to leave the company. Fadell intends to become an advisor to Google and Larry Page.
"While there is never a perfect time to transition, we’ve grown Nest to much more than a thermostat company. We’ve created a hardware + software + services ecosystem, which is still in the early growth stage and will continue to evolve to move further into the mainstream over the coming years. The future of Nest is equally as bright given the strong and experienced leadership team in place, as well as the two-year product roadmap we’ve developed together to ensure the right future direction."
