It must be getting time for Christmas, because the odd gift ideas are starting to pop up everywhere. PG Tips has announced the “ReadyWhenUR Kettle”, an SMS-enabled kettle you can switch on from your mobile phone.
A spokeswoman for PG told Ananova: “It could revolutionise tea-time. Now there is no excuse for not putting the kettle on.”
But why exactly you would want this function is something of a mystery to us. After all, it isn’t going to fetch your favourite mug from the cupboard, rummage around for the last teabag and combine all the relevant ingredients once the water is boiled, is it?
It’s good to know that top scientists are on top of important research and development like this. We truly live in a modern world.
