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.
But then you get to this part...
'Your friends can send messages to any of your objects'
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. ;-)
