Pah! If you're far enough away from your kettle to need to be told via phone (such as in the next room), it'll have dropped below optimum tea making temperature by the time you get there. It's 100°C or the kettle is boiled afresh once more Sir!

We are embarking on the great "Internet of things" experiment. When will we think nothing of the car telling us to get gas (or, charged), remind us of routine maintainence, warn us of pending system failures - or - the washer (or, dishwasher) and dryer keeping us updated on loads and time till completion, the fridge and freezer and oven and water heater, lighting, heating and cooling (I use a first gen. Nest).

Will they all play well together? Will they complete Orwell's vision? How long until rogue programmers turn them to their ends?
