The internet of things becomes a fragile argument when ever the often replaced is combined with the seldom replaced. Tech can go out of date in a couple of years, while non-tech goods can last a decade or more.
Fridges and even TVs are like this where the internet component can cease support while the core use of the device is still going strong. Another is a toaster where advanced tech is something nobody asked for. Revolution Cooking decided to make one anyway.
A large LCD display, electronic chimes and conversation starter are all features the toast eater just does not need.
With a list price of $400, this seems to be a device that will be perfect for getting a fool to depart with their money.
