I don’t have any smart appliances…but if I did, I wouldn’t connect them either. I’m smart enough to operate appliances manually.
i know i wouldn’t.
i like complete privacy in an appliance, and for them to keep their opinions to themselves.
I won’t connect them either. They can download updates or someone can download virus to disable the.m
I was forced to, to set the clock on my range. The clock. There is NO way to do it on the Samsung without putting a f**king app on my phone and hooking to the wifi.
Are they just now figuring out that most people couldn’t care less about whether or not everything has Wi-Fi ?
I have yer to see one feature on a “smart” appliance that I would use, and the damn thing is collecting data on me and not paying me for it, no. Hell, I use a computer monitor instead of a television because you can still get them without microphone and cameras.
Most are smart enough not to.
Indicating that they don’t want or need connected smart appliances.
Let’s note the REAL elephant in the article. Subscription services. They’re going the way of the automakers, subscribe to every feature. Won’t be long now. The future is pay, pay, pay you detestable serf.
IoT Appliances were the dumbest things anyways. Why does my fridge need the internet? It just needs to keep things cold.
If you want to sell something, you might begin by informing the customer of why exactly they might want their stove talking to the refrigerator or anything else. Every time I talk to my appliances, my dog looks at me funny.
I do a lot with computers, networks, and the internet.. I wouldn’t connect it either..
I’ll never get this desire to have everything connect to the internet. My toaster doesn’t need access online or my fridge, or my dryer, or my couch…
Yeah, when we bought our house, it came with new appliances, all wifi enabled.Didn’t set any of them up.
There’s no reason or value to send data to Samsung about our laundry habits or groceries.
The only thing I have connected is my backdoor/garage camera. Oh, and the computers.
There is often times little to no utility for me in connecting a smart device. The company wants me to connect the smart device so they can take my data. There for, there is no incentive for me to connect them and in fact a disincentive exists.
