SMS Your Tea Pot

A story in the Independent online describes how PG Tips, the purveyors of tea bags, have invented the SMS kettle, dubbed ReadyWhenUR. You can now put the water on to boil with your mobile phone.

A spokeswoman for PG said: "It could revolutionise tea-time. Now there is no excuse for not putting the kettle on."

But why exactly you would want this function is something of a mystery to us. After all, it isn't going to fetch your favourite mug from the cupboard, rummage around for the last teabag and combine all the relevant ingredients once the water is boiled, is it?

It won't text you when its boiled, either.
