You're forgiven if you've forgotten about the Pixel C, an Android tablet Google started selling two years ago. At its launch, it was a confounding device with clever (or, as I said in our review, "too clever") hardware saddled with software that didn't work well on a tablet. Now its dubious run has ended, as you can no longer buy it from Google's online store, as noted by Android Police.

The recall itself isn't anything that shareholders should get worked up about; it was a relatively low-volume product and the impact on the company's financials should be minimal.
