The Jura F90 is a coffee maker than runs at $2000, largely due to its amazing internet powers, like remotely setting your coffee's strength (strong enough to kill a horse, plz) and getting diagnostics help without sending the whole unit in for service.

There's no patch yet, but there better be soon. A computer getting hacked is really trivial, but shitty coffee from a $2000 machine is goddamn criminal. [Cnet]
