Everything Everywhere sim card allows for remote control cooking with the iTotal Control Oven


Yes, you did read the title correctly! This one strikes me as being a little odd but I suppose it is a natural progression in technology.

Everything Everywhere, the business that runs Orange in the UK and the country’s biggest communications company, has today announced that AGA Rangemaster has selected its proprietary M2M Management Platform and SIM cards from Orange for the new AGA iTotal Control oven.

By integrating Orange SIM cards into the new AGA iTotal Control oven, AGA customers can maintain complete remote control over their ovens, wherever they are. Those with no internet connection can text their oven with simple commands such as “baking oven on” or “all ovens off”, and will receive a reply confirming the action has been taken.  It takes less than one hour for AGA ovens to reach temperature, and the new functionality will enable customers to plan ahead when it suits them.

For customers with a smartphone or tablet, applications can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store that provide a visualization of the AGA iTotal Control oven, which can be controlled by touchscreen.  For those people not on the move but not at home either, a dedicated web portal has been designed to allow them to control their AGAs from a PC or laptop.

Nvidia Kai – Cheap Quad Core!

kaiforcheaperquadtabs23NVIDIA is working hard to make good on their promise to make $199.99 Tegra 3 quad-core tablets possible. NVIDIA’s VP of Investor Relations, Rob Csongor recently revealed during a recent stockholder meeting that the company is working on what it calls the "Kai" platform. He didn’t go into detail about it, but indicated that it will be a low-cost architecture that will allow for budget priced quad-core tablets. The stockholder meeting is pretty long at about 33 minutes, but we have included it in the source links below. Here’s a quote from the audio:


Our strategy on Android is simply to enable quad-core tablets running Android Ice Cream Sandwich to be developed and brought out to market at the $199 price point, and the way we do that is a platform we’ve developed called Kai. So this uses a lot of the secret sauce that’s inside Tegra 3 to allow you to develop a tablet at a much lower cost, by using a lot of innovation that we’ve developed to reduce the power that’s used by the display and use lower cost components within the tablet.
