Mirror, Mirror, on the desk

bunny on a MIR:ROR
Now my computer will get no rest.

Sounds great - just wave your umbrella at the MIR:ROR disc and 'voila' it tells you if you really need it that day. Your kid waves his keys at it as he walks in the door, and you get an email that he's home safe.


{4 min}

But then you get to this part...

'Your friends can send messages to any of your objects'

...'What??'...


So my BFF can IM to my Mr. Coffee: 'Decaf Only!'?
And my SO can text the DVR to tivo 'Jersey Shore'?!


Hm. 'Brave New World', my @ss. I think I'll live without any input from know-it-all appliances that are busy chatting up my pals, thanks. ;-)

  12. Hmmmm.... does the term avoidance mean anything in this regard. If I avoid thinking about it, I don't have to consider all the implications this could have...

    Sometimes, the best mirror I’ve got is my daughter’s eyes.

  17. While, I am fascinated by technology, I don't think I'd want that. I don't like putting too much trust in technology.

    Thanks for sharing and joining in on Theme Thursday!

  18. This situation will get out of control, it will get out of control and we will be lucky to live through it. Plus I don't appreciate the way that toaster looks at me. It's up to no good I tells ya.
