Google's Nest Recalls Half a Million Smoke Detectors

A smoke detector is not really worth much to homeowners if it can detect the presence of smoke, but not able to warn the occupants. That is why Google’s acquisition company, Nest, has made the wise decision to recall almost half a million units for failure to sound the alarm in case of a fire.

According to sources, users are able to download patches from the Internet that will fix the problem. However, this hasn't stopped Nest recalling its product, most likely in the hope that it will save itself from a hefty lawsuit.
