It may only take a minute or two to boil a kettle, but the agonizing wait for that reassuring click is now over, with the launch of the worlds first WiFi version.
The ultimate in mod cons for the consumer too busyor lazyto enter the kitchen and do the job manually, the iKettle can be switched on from your smartphone from anywhere in the home.
The technology promises to cater for any urgent hot drink scenario, enabling the user to remain on the sofa, or in bed in the morning, until the water is ready to pour.

When they offer me a robot that can fetch and open a cold beer, we’ll talk.
I have a coffeepot with a timer, so that when I get to the kitchen at 5:30 a.m., the coffee is ready for me. (If I didn’t know that, I might never get up!)
There are dogs that can do that.
With a wi-fi coffeepot and telecommuting for people with desk jobs, they don’t have to get out of bed much at all.
“When they offer me a robot that can fetch and open a cold beer, well talk”
I could say something now about that robotic role that would get me banned & canned.
The jokes are poised to begin writing themselves.
Is this as wrong as the diaper that tweets you when it needs changing.
Good for the environment and all that.

I’ve been watching British detective series, over Netflix.
It seems that “tea” is a social ritual, not just hot beverage.

Robot fetches beer
I want - no, I NEED one. There's a beer store nearby that delivers. Oh, for the transcendent beauty of an invention that truly is a boon to mankind. OK, Drill, think outside the box - attach a traveling urinal and a popcorn popper and you might not have to leave the rumpus room until the NFL season is over. What a concept!
I just hacked my neighbor’s WiFi. Now hold me brew mate, and watch this, hee hee! The poor slapper’s kettle has a mind of its own!
Proper social etiquette states that when a friend is down you make him a hot beverage.
So says Dr. Cooper.
I got some striped pants so I can mix stripes now.
I picked Tom up at school last Friday because Bill had gone to work, and the CPCC campus was overrun with Bill-clones. Same clothes, same facial hair, (not as good haircuts), even the same posture and gait. I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn’t him!
