And an Internet connection for my dishwasher

According to my textbook:

In addition to computers, many other devices can be connected to the Internet, including cell phones, PDAs, and home appliances.

Interesting. Home appliances, huh?

Riiiiiight.

Must be those fancy new fridge/tv/computer set ups. You can surf the net, watch your soaps AND make lunch.

Draya's mom probably has a point. I was thinking of a vacuum cleaner logged on to the internet, but I struggle to understand what the point would be of that.

Well if you can log your vacuum into the net, control it like a toy car, and vacuum from work during your lunch break maybe it would be useful???
Ah toys for the stupidly rich who have money to burn... must be nice:)

See, I'd love to have a vacuum just like that. A webcam sort of deal, where I could go into a specific site while on lunch at work and see where my vacuum is going, directing it appropriately with my handy-dandy remote control.

Of course, that would really eat into my studying time.

Nah. I don't think I need an Internet connection for any home appliances.

Though e-toast would be an interesting concept ...
