If you haven’t figured it out by now, this isn’t real. It’s an April Fools’ Day joke put on by both companies and is expected to go viral, making it a PR person’s dream. It’s not April 1 here yet, but in other parts of the world it is.

Back in January, Google acquired Nest Labs for $3.2 billion in cash. Nest was founded by Tony Fadell, an ex-Apple employee known as the ‘father’ of the iPod. The second generation Nest retails for $249 CDN from Amazon and can fully automate and manage the heating in your home right from your iPhone, saving you money.

Earlier today, we also saw Google announced the Pokemon Challenge within Google Maps for their April Fools’ Day joke.
