    Well yeah, eventually we're going to be so heavily reliant on smart devices that we're not gonna be good for shit.

    And if it's network enabled, it can always be controlled by someone else.

    Let's not get so lazy that we can't look in our own damn refrigerators before going grocery shopping.
    They have a new refrigerator that does have an app for that....

        Things to come for sure.

        Plugging your devices into the Internet could leave you at someone else's mercy.

        I'll stay in my bunker and not rely on teh cloud to handle my menial chores.

          Our house was built in 1920, but some dick added on to it back in the early 80s and did the work himself. This includes our backdoor and den, master bath and closet, and laundry room.

          Before I can tear it all out, though, I've got to put in a new bathroom in the hallway since the master is the only bathroom on the first floor. Also have to relocate the water heater and laundry, but that's a battle for another day.

          Right now trying to figure out how to fit in a shower tub, toilet, and sink into a 70" x 83" space.

          I know we can make it work, but I might need some pro tips from those who've made it work.

          Looking at you, 2233.

              I'm actually with you...but for those that need an app to automatically order milk, there's this to prevent home network hacking.

                  Already built in fact. But yes, brand new.

                        You will need to dump the shower tub and go with a corner stand up shower if you want a functional bathroom.

                          I will make it work, even if I have to shit, shower, and shave sideways.

                                Give yourself shitter space. That is important.

                                Walk in showers work, don't let your wife, put all kinds of shit in the room.
