Samsung to release new spy fridge
In defiance of the rage of the security community who see the advances of spyware and intrusiveness endangering our precious private lives and anonymity Samsung have mated a mobile phone and a fridge to produce a device dedicated to supplying food and spying on you. Samsung showed models of this impressive privacy intruding device at the recent CES demonstrating how the 'Tizen' software could add a whole new dimension to invading our privacy in our own homes. Mike Lilly from Samsung Electronics Australia was quoted as saying this was "meaningful innovation" adding "Weâ€™ve seen internet fridges out there in the past but this is actually useful", meaning that it is useful for recording information about eating and spending habits to a degree higher than currently available even compared to mobile phone apps. Samsung plan launch the fridge in July quoting "itâ€™s important to get it into a lot of homes". Scary.
In reality, its a Fridge dedicated to suck at being a fridge. There is no way anyone is going to scan every freaking thing they put in there. That's a chore. The screen takes up valuable wedding invites and Christmas card storage space. That's what a fridge front is for. I can't buy stuff from the 5 different stores I buy groceries from, with its interface. The list just goes on. Its a piece of crap. The privacy aspects aren't scary because it sucks, no one wants it.
"itâ€™s important to get it into a lot of homes". Not scary, but the way companies operate. They want to sell their products. This is also the same company that screwed over everyone who bought their smart fridge.
