Do we really need a refrigerator with a tv screen it it? Has technology surpassed necessity?
It also takes pictures of your food and emails then to you so you know what to buy.
I think it have, there are lots of things we don't need, I still don't own an Iphone, I don't need it and just to think of figuring out how to use it is head ace enough
I hadn't heard this one. It's kind of cute--useless but cute. Imagine all the dieters out there who will now get caught sneaking a snack. And if I got one then I could tell which of my kitties is stealing the chocolate! Not good for kitties but someone is doing it and there's only me and them and it isn't me so it must be them.
I saw it on television, a commercial advertising it so it must be on sale now.
with any luck once the novelty wears off it will flop. In the meantime think of all the great cartoons that will come out of this...
I feel bad for the person who can't keep track of what s/he needs to buy. I've heard of that refrigerator, and my first thought was that it's a matter of having technology anyway and thinking up yet another way to use it. My other thought was that this was probably designed by a person who has no experience running a household/family and realizing that it's no big deal to keep track of one's grocery needs.
I really don't want or need e.mails about what's in my refrigerator. It's not that tough to keep track (and if any special occasions are coming up there's always the easy-to-get-at, handwritten list on paper (or even typewritten list in one's own phone) if that's needed.
I can see a use for such a thing for people who are, say, running a busy restaurant/kitchen and/or working in some other high-volume situation; but for home? Or, maybe it would be useful for the person with limited mental capabilities (but even in such a case, has anyone ever stood in the middle of a busy grocery store aisle and tried to read even just one text message, for example? Better the person with limited mental capabilities learn the simple "art" of "food management" without having to get to one's e.mail.
Then again, if this kind of refrigerator means that the ones that are not "smart" will become substantially cheaper because they're plain, old, refrigerators.... great for anyone in need of a new refrigerator, wouldn't it be....
I heard about the one that tells you what you have. I don't have an I-Phone or whatever you call it, maybe some day in the future but I still not sure if I would get that app for the fridge. As for a tv screen, I guess my husband would like that-he like have a tv going on in every room in the house
I agree,that it is not neccesity.There are those people that would buy a Smart Roll of Toilet Paper if it was invented.I believe there is such thing as useless technology.If we lost All power the world wouldn't be able to survive.
I think the question is: has consumerism surpassed necessity? The "technology" required to pull this off was available 10 years ago.
But the answer would still be, yes.

Do we really need all this technology in our world right now?We're surrounded by technology: computers, cell phones, television, etc. Do we really need all this, or is life better without it?

Do we really need to watch the news regularly?I have found that the nightly news is mostly negative and believe we do not need to fill our subconscious with it ... events that make us feel helpless and fearful. I watch it only occassionally now and along with many things I do, for my health...
