Re: Fancy Bosch Oven
True, but surely it would be nice if it could use NTP to get the correct time for those 5 clocks.
It would be cheaper to put in a low frequency time receiver tuned to DCF-77, which reaches 2,000km from Germany (like what my over-engineered German car has). Or MSF-60 if you don't want to have to apply a correction to get UK time. But that's old, unexciting technology.
Also, whilst I can't see how it would help with proper cooking, it might be nice if you had a ready meal and could just snap the barcode with your phone and set the correct time and temperature.
I have to concede that a long wave receiver's not going to help with that. However, a QR code could carry all the information needed without requiring an Internet look-up.
