"Blame the Other App." Way to go PR Department of June.Multiple people report that their June Smart Oven turned on by itself during the night and preheated to 400 degrees, perhaps in eager anticipation of the meal it might soon cook. June did not issue a statement regarding the potential cause of this heating fiasco, but it told The Verge that user error was to blame.
In one instance, June blamed the Amazon Alexa integration for the preheating and in another instance said the user may have tapped something within the app that triggered the preheat functionality. In only one case did June send out a new oven, but the company said it was due to “unrelated issues.” The events have users concerned.
One could consider unplugging the oven. This may trigger the physical act of reprogramming when plugged back in. Gee, can the App Dependent Generation burn one calorie by the intense manual labor required to reprogram it? If you get short of breath, sit down, relax, you'll be okay. Really. There's an App for that.
The self-activation, preheating and possible fire is the least of the worries. The smart oven is probably spying on those who own it. It's recording their words and movements. It's monitoring everything they do. And it's talking about them behind their back with the smart fridge, Alexa, the Flat Screen and all the other Black Mirror devices. And their car, and gas, water and electric meters. Wave to the hidden cameras in the ovens, Fitbits, cell phones and flat screens. Your life is being live-streamed on the Dark Web. Yeah, the camera does add ten pounds, but don't worry, ya look fine.
