I'm sorry, Dave.  I'm afraid I can't cook that.

I found my oven living in the basement. And my extra large pump bottle of lotion is missing.

I don't really like the idea of Intratube-linked appliances. I'm not sure that having 110 volt machines hooked to a network that can't stop hackers from doing what they want is a good idea. I know power producers use code along their transmission lines and many parts of the world have the Intratubes available via their household mains.

Additionally, I don't want Google and other harvesters of data jotting down whether my refrigerator is out of ketchup.

What if you butt dial your oven and come home to no house.

An oven connected to the internet makes more sense than most other appliances. You can turn it on from the road and it's ready to cook as soon as you get home.

 Part of that money is going to the android tablet that is built into the face of it, letting you download recipes, control the oven, play games while your dinner is cooking and do it all from your smart phone.

This is stoooopid. I don't want to stand in front of my oven waiting for my food to cook.  I want to be comfortably seated with some sort of beverage.

Personally I think an online oven with built in temperature probe that could message me when foods hit a certain temperature would be great.  It would be even more awesome if they could build in a heat resistant camera so I could see how the food was turning out without opening the door and altering the internal temperature.

I also thing washers & dryers that message you when their cycle is done would be killer too.  Speaking of, have you seen the control panels for some modern washers?  They've got a zillion settings, and an app to control that hot mess would be pretty spiffy.

As for the people worried about hackers taking over your blender, have you never heard of firewalls+router+vpn?

My dutch oven says no, but it takes a while to convince it of something.

/Also, I suspect my knives are plotting something

Seriously, how long does it take to preheat an oven? Ten minutes? So what if you're not ready to pop that cornish hen in there until you're 36 minutes from the gym instead of 26. You really need an app for that?

My oven would probably spend all day getting hot on that I would need to get it to auto clean before I could use it at night...

... correction before my wife could use it at night.

My oven's opinions would make corners of Twitter smarter instantly.  It would freshen up the debate in the Politics tab too.

My oven is such a damn attention whore.

And we won't even begun to discuss my stove, because she's a biatch with an attitude problem.
