Alexis on how some technology can be more adolescent than high tech:
Google has yet to grow up, or grow a pair, and really get itself into the hardware business. Most of Google’s non-search engine business experiments have failed and hardware, while still around, seems to suck up investment money without providing much of a return.
Money aside, Google still has a problem with scale– not many Pixel customers vs. a comparison with Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Xiaomi, et al– and the company seems content to have Pixel be little more than a very camera-centric smartphone.
Hardware is a hobby at Google.
