This is an example of a completely stupid idea birthed in the rush to the “Internet of Things.” Apparently the security flaw in the appliance can allow a hacker to gain access to your wifi network.
Perhaps it is time to step back and ask a broader question. Why does anyone actually need network-connected kitchen appliances? Is this gizmo going to root around in the pantry and find the coffee beans for me?
I’m thinking I should just get my sorry butt out of bed and go make coffee.
