What's going to happen to the next generation when they don't put a fresh roll of TP on the roller because "they couldn't find the app that does that?"

My brand new Bunn coffee pot has two switches. On switch and a hot plate switch.
I have to rough it and make sure I don't run out of coffee or filters.
It's a tough task but someone has to do it.

They don't have to wait its already here, it's a bidet with an air dryer.

Touchscreens aren't very absorbent.

I would like that type of Japanese toilet. I think it would be good for people with disabilities and people who are hairy in that area. Some people would still want to use toilet paper, hopefully there is way to disable the spray.

Ooooh mercy.
What would one do if their toilet got hacked with ramsomware and they needed bitcoins to pay with
to get the wipe function on their toilet to work again?
I hope they got a good backup. Something like a Macrium toilet paper backup.
Can you buy toilet paper with bitcoins?

I see it as the human tendency to go overboard with things. Somethings good? Well then lets apply it to EVERYTHING! Back in the late 70's a band named The Tubes released a very satirical semi-concept album "Remote Control" about Television and its affects and pitfalls on people. A look at its song list gives you a clue to its content, "T.V. is King", "No Way Out"," Turn Me On", "Prime Time" etc. The album cover says it all .......... I mention all this because I can see "IoT" becoming our new Television in that its becoming an be all/end all and an end unto itself. And we all can see how Television has worked out......... ( the album is GREAT btw)
