Way prefer a grill with an IP address to an oven or refrigerator.

"Alexa, set my oven to bake at 375" is something you hear several times a week in my house. ️

Now my dishwasher, that's got wifi as well and that one I don't really get. The only command it accepts is to tell me how many dishwasher detergent pods I have left. To have it track that, I have to tell it whenever I buy more pods, and it subtracts one every time I run a dishwashing cycle.

All 3 of these will inevitably be botnet nodes and DDoS amplifiers. We aren't ready for the responsibility of having any of these class of devices added to the internet.

I think it would be really nice to have access to cameras in my refrigerator when I have a dinner idea as I'm leaving work.

Hope it's not a gas grill, or you may be one zero-day short of a remotely-activated IED.
