    why does my toaster need to be part of the internet of things anyway? unless it’s capable of also freezing waffles, i can’t really think of a reason my toaster needs to be “smart”

    thermostats, tvs, coffee makers, ok, i guess. maybe fridges if grocery delivery becomes more mainstream (because as of right now, i think checking food into my fridge’s inventory would be more of a pain in the ass than a help). maybe i’m just an old fart at 30, but even as a programmer and embedded systems hobbyist, I rarely think to myself “gee, i wish i could flush my toilet from home”
