Stakeholder: There are two major stakeholders in this case: 1) Google: They purchased Nest and are heavily invested in its success or failure 2) Nest Leadership: They are responsible for providing a successful product to the market and their owners Google Core Business Problem: The products offered by Nest are not fully robust and are working in a vacuum with no integration whatsoever leading to a lack of success in the marketplace.

Response to eSports don't belong at the Olympics In the article “eSports don’t belong at the Olympics” by Nathan Brown he claims that we probably won’t be seeing esports enter the Olympics within the next 30 years and tells us why in some very easy to see and clear details. His first point he makes is on how the general culture of the world views videogames and being a professional gamer in itself. People view videogames as either a time waster that children play with or something that isn’t a sport at all it’s just a silly game that immature people spend their time with. Both of these alone easily block the entrance for videogames. People’s perception on what sport is a very large part of what influences the committees to allow games to enter and how much show time they get.
