    Got it - this is what I need! SMS Kettle!

    Do you ever find yourself gasping for a cup of tea, but you just can't summon the strength to switch the kettle on? Does it all seem too much? Is all hope for the afternoon tea break fading away?

    Fear not, for PG Tips have invented the SMS kettle. You can now put the water on to boil at the flick of a switch.,..oh, sorry, touch of a button. Just text "switch on" to your kettle's phone number (there are so many things wrong with this...do you want your kettle to have a phone number?) and it will oblige.

    And, if the kettle decides to go ex-directory, you'd be left gasping.

    It would be no good for PAYG users, imagine wanting a cup of tea and running out of talktime

    I don't need that anyway, i find poking Jon with a big stick works just as well
    ( and it's a lot more fun )

    What happens when your on holiday and someone "guesses" your kettles phone number and keeps texting it until it boils dry ?

    Maybe they should include a "trusted" numbers list or have a pincode on it i.e you text "boil xxxx" where xxxx is the PIN.

    Utterly lazy, utterly cool and another weird use for technology

    you'd find yourself having a lot more cups of tea, just from the novelty of it.
