This IoT thing has gone too f'in far. "LG HomeChat - Your home appliances' chatting buddy!"
I had to look this one up just to see if it was actually for real.
Among the features:
"Try giving commands by selecting options or tapping on cute stickers!"
"Cute little customized remote-controls to help you select every complicated function in your chatroom!"
"Talk to your smart home appliances like you would to any other friend!"
Any. Other. Friend.
LG. My appliance, is not, my friend. Work on making a microwave handle that doesn't break, then we'll talk chatting appliances.
The mix of nausea and just plain sadness for the future of things is indescribable.
