While Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was never called out by name, the Amazon retail team stated that the decision came "from the top".
Amazon's purchase of Ring late last month not only adds a greater number of devices to its suite of products, including smart doorbells, but also puts the e-commerce giant a step closer to combining its hardware with its delivery services, as Business Insider noted in a separate report.
Champion runner Sir Roger Bannister dies at 88
He leaves behind his wife Moyra Jacobsson, their two sons, two daughters, and 14 grandchildren . "Those are real achievements". On a windy late afternoon in Oxford on May 6, 1954, Bannister ran four laps on a cinder track in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds.
A report from Business Insider states that late a year ago, the retail giant reached out to Google smart home subsidiary Nest to let it know that Amazon wouldn't sell any of its newest products, including Nest Cam IQ and a new smart thermostat. And since the two giants aren't on good terms lately, it seems that they are "collateral damage" in this endless cycle of push and pull between the two companies.
Aside from nixing Google's phones and speakers, Amazon has yet to re-list its rival's Chromecast streaming device, after promising to restart sales of it in December. Amazon pursues to sell homogeneous products from August and other companies, but soon won't have to worry about advertising one of its main competitors on its own store.
Both Nest and Amazon has declined to comment, the report said.
M*A*S*H Star David Ogden Stiers dies after cancer battle
As the snobbish Winchester, Stiers was a flawless foil for Alan Alda's lovable, wise-cracking character Hawkeye Pierce. The CBS sitcom, which was set during the Korean War, is one of the most watched TV shows of all time.
Nest's view is that they would either like to sell their entire product portfolio, or nothing at all, and hence they won't be restocking products after they're sold out from this point on. To date, Amazon has dominated the voice-controlled speaker market with its Echo devices, which were projected to hold more than 70% of the USA market in 2017.
It's now unclear whether consumers will be able to buy Nest's connected gadgets through third-party sellers on Amazon Marketplace. Nest has a mixed track record at Google, though, so it's also possible the company is bringing it closer to home in order to redeploy its talent towards other parts of Google's smart ecosystem.
