worldspy - 25.10.11 15:51 Tony Fadell, the man who designed the iPod, is now turning his talents to a much less sexy market: Thermostats.
It's a pretty odd transition from one of the most beloved consumer products of the last decade to something most people take for granted, but Fadell thinks he can make the thermostat a sexy consumer product, writes Steven Levy at Wired who got an early look at the product.
Fadell's thermostat company is called Nest and its backed by Kleiner Perkins, Google Ventures, Insight Ventures, and a few others. Levy says it's raised $50 million in funding.
