Google is bringing Nest back into the fold. Nest, known for it's slick thermostats and user-friendly security cameras, was acquired by Alphabet (then called Google) for $US3.2 billion ($4.1 billion) in 2014. Since then the company has grown - according to Geekwire it has more than quadrupled its staff, and it's rolled out a wide range of products, including cameras, an alarm system and a smart doorbell. Now the company, which Nest CEO Marwan Fawaz claims has shipped over 11 million devices to date, is being brought back into Google, and that means Google is about to get a lot more intimate with your home.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
