These home networks are then open to attack in surprising ways: A hacker might turn on the blender from outside your home to distract you as he sneaks in a back window, he warns.

Be careful, guys!

I bet that hacker will sure be surprised when he goes to turn on the blender that I don't have! :D

I don't have a blender either. Instead, I've programmed by laser-equipped security robot to go into hunt mode when it receives any "turn on blender" commands. That wily hacker is in for a surprise!

Or I'm in trouble the next time I want margaritas.

It came from Fox, so it can't possibly be true.

I find it offensive that these people are paid for writing this and get to be called journalists.

Coming from someone who has worked as a journalist and in the I.T. field...this is just crap, from every perspective.

Ohh no! But I keep all my expensive possessions in my blender!

If my blender suddenly starts, I am going for my M4! All this comes as no surprise as we wire more things together in our homes. The quest for "convenience" of many people never ceases to amaze me. My home network is password protected and there is nothing attached to the network other than the computers. I can put a key in the lock in my home, I do not need to use my iPhone over the internet to do so. I know I am safe by not over automated my home.

I didn't know my blender had WIFI I suspected as much from my ex GF's dildo though. I mean that thing was always on when her computer was.

The day I saw their "live coverage" of the last presidential election have different words then CNN and Al Jazeera (the two other networks I had on) was the day I stopped giving them any attention.
