Hi all,

This week's poll question is about all the excitement surrounding this past week's CES in Las Vegas. Discuss here what you think of the latest gadgets and gizmos on display, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

Why would you need or want WiFi on a laundry pair? Maybe I am old school but unless the washer can gather, sort, insert clothes and soap then what is the sense.

Those front load units are already expensive without adding cost. Not to mention potential repair bills. No thanks.

I would gladly pay 25% more for a normal washing machine that returns all socks you put in it. After 2-3 years, you break even economically, depending on family size.

I, personally, believe in a simple life. All the new gadgets and gizmos are tantalizing, but in reality, don't do much for me. I don't understand the need for constant attention and the need to communicate with people 24/7. I like my privacy and will let people know where I am and what I'm doing when I feel it necessary. All this new stuff coming out is strictly for the purpose of making money. The marketing machine trying to convince you that you have to have this device. Really, how important are you and how much Data do you have or need. When I read articles, like the one about the Iphone release in China, and the stampedes that follow to get one of these, it makes me sad to think of how we've sunk as people, to the level of herd consciousness. I don't want or need WiFi on my washer. I'm still laughing about the stupidity of this whole craze. People seem to have more money that brains these days, which is a whole other subject.

Makes one wander? What did we do with ourselves just 15 years ago. Before we could communicate with everyone no matter where we were at that moment. Or watch movies on our phones while driving a school bus. And my god I am so glad that while I am on vacation I can now connect with my washer to tell it to start my laundry. Although it may be all mildewed by the time I get home because I forgot to tell it to put them in the dryer for me as well.
