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


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 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.
