REVIEW: Smarter iKettle takes 11 Hours to Boil water for Tea

71ctkjnfapl-_sl1500_

Gizmodo has an amazing writeup which was courtesy of The Guardian on Data specialist Mark Rittman and his struggle to make tea.  He started around 9:00AM, but found himself in an eleven hour saga trying to get his wi-fi tea kettle to work.

The Kettle in question appears to be the Smart.er iKettle 2.0, available on Amazon for $158.

Rittman literally had to hack his kettle in order for the water to get boiled… 11 hours later.

This should be a constant reminder about smaller companies and their reliance on building out their own server and app infrastructure.
