I bought mine just a few days ago, my combi micro/grill/oven finally died. It was too big for my bin which the council collect so I sneaked out in the night and dumped it in the street knowing the council would have to remove it when a neighbour complained haha.


Haha!
I imagine it didn't take long for one of your fancy pants neighbors to complain!

Back in the summer, there were paint cans in my driveway, I assume the garbage collectors put them there. Someone must have come by in the night and threw them in my can. I guess because we do contracting work, they assumed that they were mine and I was trying to break the rules!

I just took them on my next load to the contractor's dump...

Lol

It's getting harder to dispose of things these days, charges at the processing centre and they only accept so much, if you turn up too often they tell you to pay or piss off.
...sneak it into the street into the dead of night though and the council remove it, and yes, my rich neighbours will be on the phone to authorities first thing in the morning, trash gone by the afternoon lol.

Or how about the fridge that lets you press a button to see what’s in there, rather than open the damn door hahaha.


i dont know if you are joking but those exist.

i was at lowes a month ago or so and they had one in there. front door had a huge monitor built into it.
fridge had like 20 cameras or some #.

you could do exactly that.
push the button and see right inside

several thousand dollars

i wonder if there is a device smaller than a fridge, maybe something we can put in our pocket that would allow us to communicate???


in the 30's families used to gather around the ole transistor radio to sing carter family songs

now families are going to gather around the fridge to watch some youtube bull#

hahahaha

Well according to a few rumbles I've "heard" online Amazon are considering a trial project in the States that would basically be cheap low cost housing for poor people with integrated Alexa through the entire house. From what I'm assuming it'll be literally every part and parcel of the house would be Alex (and therefore Amazon/Government) controlled buildings, and notice the rumour is that it'll be cheap housing for poor people maybe rich people realise how bad it would be to have a faceless company able to digitally control your house lol.

At one point, I had the idea of making a microwave with a barcode scanner that would relate time instead of price.

Didn't do anything beyond think about it for a bit, since it didn't seem like too much of an improvement.

But, after seeing all the stuff like this.. I'm rethinking my decisions.

It seems like those designing all these types of items, automation, and IoT are bound and determined to be as frivolous as possible.

Oh look!

A bunch of people whining on a piece of technology they don't need about technology they think nobody needs. If you're on a pricey, fancy tablet or a smartphone bitching, I suggest you back up the bus and check yourself.
The irony, so strong it could almost be a cooking source itself.

I don't see the point in the bulk of the connected devices & regular tech out there, either, Specifically, the more you paid for a smartphone, the more stupid I personally think you are. However, the tech is there. Bitching about it isn't going to make it go away, or make you any smarter than anyone else.
If anything, it just makes you look like a sniveling, jealous/envious little s#.

I’m more interested in quick tips for speeding up cooking times. For instance, I use a microwave bowl, add brussels sprouts or green beans, frozen or fresh and microwave for eight minutes. Then I drain, put seasonings like diced onion garlic oil whatever your taste in a skillet and sauté until fully seasoned. Total cooking time approximately 15 minutes or less.
