Microsoft Kills Hohm - Google Kills PowerMeter

 The death of freeware for the smart home of the future imagination

At Microsoft:

"Hohm Service Announcement

We have made the decision to discontinue Hohm on May 31, 2012, although the service will continue to operate until that time. Please visit our blog to learn more."

AT Google 

"Since our launch, there’s been more attention brought to the issue of giving consumers access to their energy data and we’re excited that PowerMeter has helped demonstrate the importance of access to energy information. However, our efforts have not scaled as quickly as we would have liked, so we have decided to retire PowerMeter."
