Did Google buying Nest make it a rage quit... or must get? [Poll]

What does Google buying Nest mean to you?

Earlier this week Google bought Nest for a stupefying $3.2 billion dollars, and reaction to the deal has been extreme to say the least. We saw some members of the tech community vow to rip their existing Nests from wall, stomp them into bits, and never do business with them again. We saw Apple's Phil Schiller unfollowing Tony Fadell. Yet we also saw our own Phil Nickinson and Kevin Michaluk raced out to buy Nests and get them installed. So what's to be made of all this?

Like Apple history? You'll love The Record!

The Record is something near and dear to my heart. Not only is it hosted by Chris Parrish and Brent Simmons, developers for whom I have the utmost respect, but it focuses on the stories behind the technology I love. When Guy English started the Debug podcast our goal was to continue the great conversations we had after conferences, in the bars, like WWDC or Çingleton all year round. Part of that includes the secret history of Apple and computing and all that, but The Record is expressly about capturing and preserving just that. The first season focuses on Seattle before the iPhone, and the second episode stars John Nack of Adobe. I simply can't say enough good things about it, so give it a listen.

Had an iPhone 5s since launch? Tell me how it's holding up for you!

Four months ago today many of us here at iMore were either waiting for our brand-new iPhone 5s to show up at our doors, or lining up to get our hands on it immediately. There was a gold rush, and the usual amount of online fuss. Most of us flat out loved the iPhone 5s, but over time it stopped being new and simply became our phone. So let me ask you this — four months later, how's your iPhone 5s (or iPhone 5c, if that's how you roll!) and iOS 7 holding up? What's making you happy, and what's making you crazy? What are your pain points, and what's pure pleasure?

How anti-Apple, pro-Amazon manipulations have resulted in less competition, higher ebook prices

Sometimes when there's smoke, there's just smoke. And sometimes there are Kindles full of fire. Following the Wall Street Journal's scathing opinion piece last month, another media outlet is now asking questions about the conduct of the Department of Justice, the judge, and the external monitor. Kathleen Sharp goes so far as to call Amazon's crusade "bogus" in her headline on Slate:
