Talking over the table last night after our evening meal my daughter suddenly says,
“My friend’s bought a wi-fi kettle.”
“A wi-fi kettle. She can turn it on first thing in the morning whilst still in bed using her phone.”
“And if you’ve forgotten to fill it up with water the night before?”
“Oh it tells you how much water’s in it too.”
The appliance of science. Now I know technology is clever and often a wonder to behold, but a kettle you can boil remotely. Why bother. Is time so precious, such a scarce commodity or some people just plain lazy?
Intrigued I looked into it further. You probably already knew (I didn’t) it’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s no end to the number of household appliances you can control. But I couldn’t find one to raise the toilet seat for those unforeseen emergencies in the night!
And what happens when there’s a power cut or you forget to charge your phone up, or delayed in traffic…..
Maybe it’s just me and I am missing something here.
