And the manuals are still written in Engrish.

Ever notice some people just can't wrap their heads
around the idea that you do not necessarily make a
shovel better by hanging an LCD panel on it? What
really scares me is the stuff I've seen about the
"Internet-enabled stove." You could remotely control
your cooking roast. I have visions some hacker could
take over the oven and rig it to go to max heat with
no time limit so it melts and sets the house on fire.
