today i was browsing ebuyer when i found THIS

LG Lifestyle MG-5682NL INTERNET Enabled Microwave Oven

Desription
The MG-5682NL `Internet Enabled Microwave is a 1,250W Grill with a LCD display. As well as all the functions and programmes you would normally expect to find on a high tech microwave, the MG-5682NL also has a 20 menu memory function so you can download recipes from the Internet and store them on the LCD display. Whilst downloading recipes from the `www.dreamlg.co.uk website, you will also be offered cooking tips and a `help option. Once again the `Internet Enabled Microwave can be accessed as a stand alone product via your laptop - or remotely as part of the Networked Appliances.


so now our microwaves are internet enabled!, what next our hovers?

Lol, I saw those advertised on ebuyer too! It's a crazy idea - really gimmicky as I don't think it does very much at all, but quite cool anyway! Not even that much more than a standard microwave either ;)

Isn't LG the same company that makes the fridge with the TV in the door?

It's hard to believe that these companies have no new technologies for their products other than this! I didn't see any advantages for myself or anyone I know in the products on this thread! Too many people get paid to come up with nothing but crap!

actually, the logitech harmony remote is online-enabled for a very good reason. The userbase is constantly updated, so there is always commands for your remote even on components that have come out after the remote was made.


Ive tried many of learning remotes before but this one is by far the easiest to use and it also works as well as my origional remotes

i really cant say enough about it, i want another one for upstairs but they are expensive at about $120 street price

OK - Kool-You can activate the Microwave remotely and load in recipies.

Where is the remote controll robot who loads in the food, measures and mixes in the ingredients?

:rolleyes:

I think the ILoo would be more interesting if you could flush it remotely and give someone a good dose of fresh air on their bum.:D

As if there wasn't enough stuff out there needing an IP address...

Years ago when the first talk about IPv6 came out I was joking about toasters needing addresses, now it's a matter of time before I have one which also acts as a WiFi hotspot :eek:

How often do you think that you should hook up the harmony up to the internet to get updates for your components? Unless you add a component, once your current components are programmed to the harmony remote, is there any reason to hook up to the internet at all?
