    Great. Now I’m getting robbed by my coffee at home and at Starbucks.

    And what exactly does giving a coffee machine an IP address do to enhance the coffee it produces?

    A coffee maker needs water, a specific amount of ground coffee and water heated to a specific temperature. And in some cases a specific water pressure.

    Simple electronics can achieve this process, it doesn’t need to be able to go online to make coffee.

    It’s all fun to have every single device in you home being “smart”.

    IoT seems to be getting a bit too dangerous why can’t people just stick to a regular coffee machine.

    The hell is wrong with this website. Only 20% on my mobile screen estate was actual content, the rest was jittery ads that desperately try to follow my scrolling. Who the hell reads these articles without an adblock or six

    This isn’t really showing any scary vulnerability of IOT….that we didn’t already know at least. In the article he says it could be accessed “through a weak router”. Like yeah all internet enabled devices can be fucked with if your network isn’t secure. I’d call that a network security problem not an IOT problem
