There is also a Wi-Fi operated coffee maker.  Shocked
This is technology for the sake of it surely!!

Things seem to be getting more and more over complicated not simpler.
It used to be so straightforward.
There was the kettle right in front of you in the fireplace.

It's not a real smart kettle until it can also fill itself up from the water supply.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

How long to the iLoo?
Many (stupid) people I know sit on the loo and already tap away at their phone.
So why not an iLoo + app that flushes the loo for them.
Saving them all that "effort" of pressing a handle.
Would that be any dafter than the iKettle?
Don't the makers of these ever more ludicrous devices notice the people coughing iTosser into their hand as they pass them.

I've got Lightwaverf controls for my lighting in the lounge, hallway, stairs, landing, front conservatory and outside lights. I can programme them with timers and control them over t'internet from smartphone. I thought I had a problem recently but it was a grandson who had got grandma's IPad round at their house and was in control Grin
