IDG Contributor Network: Nest Cam first look: Privacy problems and deal-breaking delays
Yesterday was a big day in my house. I received two Linux-powered devices — and it’s not even Christmas. In the interest of full disclosure, I paid for them myself, they were not gifts or review units. One was the ASUS Chromebook Flip, which I wrote up my first impressions of yesterday. The other is the Nest Cam, and now that I’ve had a chance to use it for a bit, here are my thoughts.
I ordered the Nest Cam as soon as it became available on Amazon.com as a replacement for my Tenvis camera. I already own the Nest thermostat and pre-ordered the next generation Nest alarm system, so I already have some trust in this Google-owned company.
