More than 50% of the population owns a smart phone, with the total number of people who own a cell phone hovering well above the 90% mark. From tablets to gadgets anything else that has been dubbed "smart," the masses tend to clamor for whatever makes life easier.
Now that "smart" mentality has crossed over from our pockets, purses and briefcases directly into our kitchen, more specifically the propensity to put plenty of stock in appliances that go above and beyond the rudimentary fridge, stove, dishwasher and even cookware and washers and dryers.
So you may be asking yourself, how exactly do appliances transform from simple to smart if the idea and practicality behind them is the same? Quite simply at first glance, the additions to appliances seem more like a stretch than real convenience personified.
Like the so called "smart" stoves, with a top that doesn't include traditional burners or buttons but rather swipe technology as if your range has suddenly adopted the traits of your iPhone. Your fridge doesn't just keep food cold or frozen, but now can include a digital display on the door to give you updates on how well (or not) your appliances is working, including the temperature.
Granted, there are some practical features to these futuristic appliances but ironically are simple fixes to problems that could have been corrected before the term "smart" meant that you've added technology to a particular product.
