This Stupid Jug Texts You When Your Milk Goes Off

By Leslie Horn on at

Milkmaid is a new smart jug that tells lazy people when their milk has gone bad. And it actually won a contest from GE and Quirky, but not for being the most superfluous gadget ever.

Equipped with sensors; GSM radio; an antenna (is this a joke?); a SIM card, and rechargeable battery, Milkmaid will give you more milk stats than you ever need to know, you anal retentive dummy. An integrated iPhone app will tell you vital data like the temperature, expiration date, and how much is actually left. Because you can't just, you know, look at the bottle.

Here's the kicker—it sends you a text when it's spoiled. The only reason you'd ever need this is if you were an idiot, or if you were blind and had no sense of smell. Just because technology can do something doesn't mean it should. [Mashable]
