    It's quite a sad thing that they have to put that in a statement.

    Worryingly, Google didn't: it was Fadell who responded to concerns by claiming that the existing Ts&Cs, which appear at a casual glance to prevent such use of personally identifiable data, won't change.

    Google ads could be coming to thermostats, refrigerators and car dashboards (update)

    Google offered the following comment on the matter.
    I love the way they say at present it doesn't have ads, and then say never had plans.
    Not ruling anything out for tomorrow then Google ;)
