The Internet of things is great until it blows up your house

So instead of just chucking a pile of washing into the machine from the basket and turning the machine on (with the same settings I use every week, that I know are OK for the clothes I normally wear) I've got to scan each item with my smartphone. The washing machine will then throw a fit because it can't resolve the different settings between socks, underwear and shirts.

Iron setting are of no interest - I don't use one most of the time. If I did, you scan an item, wait 5 minutes for the iron to heat up, do that one, scan the next one which wants a lower temperature so you wait again...

This suggests the author does not actually do the housework.
