Google's Nest Labs hit by smoke-alarm hitch


Google (GOOG) unit Nest Labs has halted sales of its smoke alarms after it discovered that a feature that enables a user to turn the device off via a hand gesture could be activated by accident.

Nest Labs, which Google recently bought for $3.2B, is working on a fix that could take two-to-three months to complete, including regulatory approvals.

    I was going to buy one until I looked at the Amazon reviews. Literally thousands of faulty units out there. Something definitely wrong with Nest manufacturing.
