"Watch TV without being watched. Free rabbit ears aerial.

Starting bid, $1000. Shipping, probably as much again."

You might think you're joking, but when I read this bit in the article:

"Except, of course, that it tells anyone who's listening that you have enough money to buy a connected refrigerator,"

My immediate thoughts were that if enough people become aware of the potential issues of all this then in time, as all of this iOUT1 stuff becomes the norm, what we might see is the complete reverse being true:

'Except, of course, that it tells anyone who's listening that you don't have enough money to buy a refrigerator that doesn't connect.'
