It’s an email from your pot roast

Wait a minute. Isn’t the whole idea of a Crock-Pot to avoid constantly fiddling with dinner?

If ever there was a sign that the “Internet of Things” is finally here, it’s the internet connected Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker launched at CES in Las Vegas this week.

Costing $99 (£66) when it launches in the US in the coming weeks, the internet-connected slow cooker uses Belkin’s WeMo connected tech to connect to the internet and then be controlled via your phone when you are out of the house.

Once it’s connected to the internet, you have full control over the cooker via the WeMo app, be that in your home or anywhere in the world for that matter.

I dunno. Goes against my grain, I guess.

Goes against Bill Quick’s grain, too, but for a different reason:

Great. Now the NSA will be monitoring what you’re having for dinner tonight.

They’ll probably just hand it off to HHS, so Sebelius can see if you’re eating an Approved Diet.

But yeah, that’s enough to kill the deal right there.
