Some cars have buttons you can push to make the windows go up and down. Talk about lazy! And don't get me started about "key fobs."

LOL...this is good....
While watching TV the other night an add came on for the Samsung refrigerator that has the touchscreen for internet access and to check what is inside your fridge. I get it but really......are we too lazy to open the fridge and see that we are out of milk....maybe the cost savings of not having to open the fridge is enough to offset but I am pretty sure my 7 year old would look at the screen then proceed to open the door and check anyways. Beyond that, I am not sure I really need to surf the internet on my fridge door......I am tech challenged enough without adding another device to worry about!

Do we need an app to tell our shower to turn on and go to 103 degrees? Seriously?.......... Who the F needs that? Who is that vapid and lazy that they need to tell alexa or amazon or whatever other spying device to turn on their shower for them? Turn the handle and wait for it to get warm while you are undressing for f-sakes. I hope they don't sell a single one of these. The thought of this thing drives me crazy....just makes me want to curse....loudly.

While I agree, there is an ap for that fridge where you can look and see what is in there while you’re out getting groceries.

recirculating hot water lines have been around forever. you don't need a shower head to do that work.

I lived in a house about 10 years ago with hot water recirc lines. very fancy and muy bueno
