Wi-Fi Kettle Takes 11 Hours To Make Cup Of Tea

Data specialist Mark Rittman wanted to make a cup of morning tea, but found himself in an 11-hour saga trying to get his Wi-Fi tea kettle to work. He documented his struggle on a website that's also struggling, a social network called Twitter.com. Image via Twitter

While Rittman did acquiesce to boiling his water the old-fashioned way — in a "saucepan" — his struggle with his Wi-Fi kettle continued well into the day.

Rittman literally had to hack his kettle in order for the water to get boiled... 11 hours later.

What's the lesson here? Never give up. JK, the lesson is screw the internet of things. Go analogue, baby.
