It was reported in the summer that an unnamed pair of ex-Apple’s engineers on behalf of an unnamed startup is going to present an unnamed product. It turned out that they were Tony Fadell, Apple’s former Senior Vice President of the iPod division and the leading engineer Matt Rogers. They use the iPod click wheel in the new product.
This is not a music player of the new generation, instead they developed a thermostat. The new startup of Tony Fadell and Nest Labs decided to add to the design and purposefulness of Apple standard in those boxes that are installed on the walls of a quarter million American homes and offices, which control their internal temperature. Why? Fadell is sure that all existing thermostats are ugly and too difficult to use. He wants to do something that no one ever thinks about, and make it as a favorite object in the house.
