This advert should be banned.......  Why?  well, what kind of "smart" person would be encouraging people to sit in the bath....... using a mobile phone  ? ? ?Huh

 

Surely there has been enough idiots electrocuting themselves while using a mobile phone in the bath..

 

( yeah, ok.... this one is not plugged in to the charger.... but the idiots will not notice that..... will they  ? ? ? )

Re: Einstein is an idiot

As you say, @shutter , highly irresponsible.

A quick Google for "mobile phone bath electrocution" shows it's not uncommon.

The whole advert a flawed. It says on the screen that user intervention is required which of course means that the meter isn't smart as it takes a conscious to turn an appliance off in order to reduce consumption.

Yes, it's irresponsible, but it probably only affects those who would have succumbed to Darwinian selection anyway.

Re: Einstein is an idiot

Hate to break it to you @shutter but that's not really him. 😉

As for using a mobile phone whilst in the bath, I don't own one of those mega buck ones he looks to be using but if I did, the bathroom would be the last place I'd be using it charger or no.

@Minivanman  Really  ?  Oh.... how infuriating, that someone should be allowed to imitate such a famous personality, while he is having a barf....

 

Seriously, though... I wasn`t "havin` a larf" with this thread.... I just thought it was a completely idiotic scenario, to try and promote something called "SMART" and through that promotion, showing idiots that it is "ok" to use a mobile phone in a bath, when so many idiots have electrocuted themselves in so doing.

If you did ever get a mega buck one @Minivanman , it'd be worth making sure you choose a water resistant one.

A young family member who lives in Australia lost his phone in a river whilst on a camping trip.

Fortunately he found it an hour later when he stood on it, fished it out, and it was still working.

Oh, Samsung of course!
