ReadyWhenUR SMS kettle

Orange and PG Tips (they make tea, ok, Yanks?) have developed the Wallace and Gromit-inspired ReadyWhenUR kettle. That connection is a stretch, but hey, they drink tea and invent things, so we'll let it slide. No, it won't make you feel any less lonely, nor will it filter out the nasties, but you can put this kettle on by texting it the words "switch on" from your cellphone. Of course, you'll still have to drag your lazy ass over to fill it with water, and while you're there you could always turn it on… but what's the point in that!
