The £99 iKettle from Firebox.com is actually quite a good idea. It looks remarkably similar to the kettle I bought a couple of months ago, complete with buttons for different temperatures for various teas. Neat. Perhaps I should have waited. It would have been good to tell the device to start boiling while I’m still in bed or approaching home in the car. But there is one really big snag with this thing. Who fills it with water? Certainly not my iPhone. I will have to fill it and I can guarantee that I will forget. Whenever I have the urge to fire up the iPhone and instruct the kettle you can be absolutely sure that it will be empty. Until we have a kettle that fills itself on iPhone instructions I do not see much use for the iKettle.
