What it really should have is a great big Twitter bird with a muck-spreader attachment below responding to the frequency of tweets, so the garden really is fertilized by Twitter.
As a bonus, I'm sure they'd also be in the running for the Biggest Marrow competition after a couple of days.
I think we need a Godwin's Law for BitCoin
"As an online discussion on BitCoin grows longer, the probability of mentioning "fiat currency" approaches 1"
What I really want it to do...
Do an OCR of a magazine listing, compile it up, then do the tape emulator bit.
Imagine the resale value of verified names!
Given the US's privacy laws, linking Facebook profiles to real-life people will be marketing gold for Air BnB to sell on! Or even better, the tax-man can tie the rentals to a real-life person to make sure they are paying taxes, or Air BnB can sell landlords a check to make sure their tenants aren't sub-letting through Air BnB.
I see, that seems useful!
I have a chart posted on my wall, but I still have to look at a calendar to cross-check if this is the second or fourth Friday of the month.

Android is in the smartphone, not in the rice cooker, and the only communication the cooker has with the outside world is through an NFC chip that pairs with your smartphone to download cooking program settings and upload usage information.
As for a rice cooker being simple, there's differences for white rice or brown, keeping it warm all evening, designer burnt bits, adding veggies to the pot, adding shop-bought rice-mix flavours (frozen and vacuum-sealed), etc, etc.
Indeed, one of the use cases is buying food with a QR code on the box, popping onto the scanned website to get the ideal recipie, then bonk-to-scoff.
(And yes, I do work there...)
