More and more home appliances are now wired to receive data from other sources. The latest is the Melitta Smart Mill & Brew
10-cup coffeemaker which will provide you the daily weather report in addition to providing you with a hot cup of coffee. The coffee pot gets its news from MSN Direct and provides updates every 10 minutes to provide current conditions as well as a 3-day forecast. The machine also grinds the beans so basically it does everything but put it in a cup and shove you out the door in the morning. It sells for around $199.95 on Amazon.
