Christ. That Hive ad is something else. A whole, new level of cuntfuckery opened up in the marketing world. It's a shite proposition as you say Smash, dressed up as a kooky necessity that we all need. I feel so inferior with my thermostat on timer and not being able to be spend all the time freed up by hive playing chess with a whale.
Indeed. I happened to catch the first ten minutes of a recent Dragon's Den and there was some prick of a cunt on there trying to get £1m (one million English fucking pounds) to market an 'app' that you could use to run your fucking bath for you.
Oi, cunt... NO. Just FUCK OFF.
Did it not get funded?
There must a good number of disabled people who would find that useful, although they probably shouldn't be left alone in the bath.
No. It didn't.
From memory the tool was only offering 10% for the £1m investment and then, when Peter Jones said he'd already got a similar system in his overseas villa and had never once used it, the tool had to concede that there was nothing really proprietary about his offering. The disabled market is too easy to take the piss out of but seriously - an app to run your fucking bath - programmable to accept umpteen different temperature preference profiles for different members of your household?!
What next - an app to turn your shower on in ten minutes time when you're actually ready to get in it?
No. The whole concept of app controlled abluting can just FUCK OFF.
