Milkmaid is a new smart jug that tells lazy people when their milk has gone bad. And it actually won a contest from GE and Quirky, but not for being the most superfluous gadget ever.

Equipped with sensors, GSM radio, an antenna (is this a joke?), a SIM card, and rechargeable battery, Milkmaid will give you more milk stats than you ever need or wanted to know. An integrated iPhone app will tell you vital data like the temperature, expiration date, and how much is left. Because you can’t just, you know, look at the bottle. And here’s the kicker — it sends you a text when it’s spoiled. The only reason you’d ever need this is if you were blind and had no sense of smell, or just a lazy university kid.

Just because technology can do soemthing, does it mean it should? [Mashable]
