More Cool Tech

" />
I have actually seen a phone used to send signals from a pacemaker to the doctor's office. But seeing this technology become common to the home is kinda nifty.

WTF I've been working for Sears for the past 5 years and I DO SALES and I have never heard of this.... >.<

Besides the fact I have no idea what it actually does.

i got it off the sears site under kenmore. it sends a modem like sound over the phone which the computer decifers and tells the customer service person what is wrong and whether it is a simple fix they can walk the owner through or requires a service call, which they set up. pretty nifty actually.

I'm sorry, what's so new about a machine making beeping noises? R2D2 squeaked and squawked until 3CPO was driven to distraction and that disk the little android from Flash Gordon carried around couldn't open it's mouth with out a bleep-a-dee-bleep first.

yeah, but umm... this is in real life and they can diagnose a problem remotely thus saving you an expensive service call if there is just a simple problem you can correct yourself. pretty cool don't cha think?

Ok... the disk thingie in Flash Gordon was a bit of a stretch but R2D2 is real, I've flown with him in my X-Wing through several missions and even over the death star!
