The rate things are going, I'm just waiting to find out the massive uptick in robocalls comes from botnets running out of unsecured wi-fi enabled toasters.

We have a bunch of these where I work.  They are hugely popular.  Sparkling water on demand is a thing.

That review was amazing.  Plinkett-tier.

We have the Ion things where I work but not the variety with the touchscreen.  Normal buttons you push and water comes out.  I really hope we don't pay a subscription service for them because goddamn that seems dumb.

My Sodastream makes better fizzy water anyway tbh.

Since this is now the "stupid buisnesses of the internet age" thread, I present to you: MoviePass!

Quote
The owners of MoviePass need another $1.2 billion.
Helios and Matheson (HMNY), parent company of the popular movie subscription service, told regulators Monday that it wants to sell that much in stock and debt securities.

MoviePass exploded in popularity because of its low price. For just $10 a month, about the cost of a single movie ticket in most places, MoviePass subscribers can see one movie a day.

But the company loses money when its customers use a pass, because it must pay theaters for the tickets

This is brilliant.  Lose billions selling a subscription service to movies because you are just buying tickets at face value.

I think you meant Instagram, or maybe WhatsApp.
