Smart this, Smart that argghh

Recommended Posts

sick of hearing how everything has now the word 'smart' infront of stuff, smart meters, smart tv's ,smart watches, smart phones. usually it means there is some kind of microwave emmitting transmitter/receiver built in in the form of wifi, blootooth etc,

Now we have 'smart' beds, to help  sleep,  I always though too much close exposure to devices however small the signal, is not good , insomia, headaches even cancer, Not only that, 'smart ' devices have been spying on us, look at the voice activated tv's that have been listening and sending data back via wifi or telephone line,  Just bought a new tv myself and made damn sure it was not a smart model, and saved a few hundred too, the picture qaulity which is my priority is just as good, who need s 'smart' gimmicks

As for that bed....well I will NEVER have one

"Smart" usually just means it's connected to the internet. But yeah, the bed thing seems unnecessary, but that doesn't mean people won't buy it if it becomes fashionable.

 

As for smart TVs, the privacy concerns would certainly rank high in my list of considerations.It's easy to see how people would like them though, as being able to browse the net, use netflix and other media streaming services, and other online tools (without having to connect through alternative devices) is handy.

I find the smart watches funniest, they look like those cheap digital sports watches one used to have. 

 

Would still much prefer this piece of Swiss pornography myself..

British Gas are pestering me to have a ,  wait for it.....   a SMART meter fitted,   NO NO NO NO,  GET LOST ,  no more microwave spying devices in this house, already been fooled into having one for the water,

''smart''   meters that can be remotely accessed by the utility companies to switch off your supply if you miss a payment, thats what these meters are really about 

 

listening ''smart''  tv's that send your conversation back over the wifi network  ,   

 

Smart fridges, whats that all about , WHY?
