I was in Fry's last year ad they had an "internet refrigerator".
There was a touchscreen PC built into the door. I disremember whether
it was ethernet or wireless, but the thing was set up for kiosk-style
web browsing and email. As far as I could tell, the computer had
nothing to do with running the fridge, but it was still a... "chilling"
I'll just get my hat.
