Dishwasher has directory traversal bug

If so-called tech companies give up on patching a smartphone after 3 - 6 months in many cases, what chance does an IoT white good have in 10 to 20 years?

In most cases, there just isn't any benefit to having white goods attached to the internet. What is it supposed to tell me? I can't start it until I have manually filled it up and it already turns itself off, when it is finished.

Mine has a little light for salt and another for clear rinse, which light up when they need refilling... I just don't see the need for these things.
