Wired News: Chilly Forecast for Smart Fridge

Wired News: Chilly Forecast for Smart Fridge: "The MMS Fridge by Electrolux lets users with cell phones that have multimedia messaging service, or MMS, remotely snap a picture of their fridge's interior. The refrigerator comes installed with Web cameras to capture the image of all the items inside the fridge, said Electrolux spokesman Tony Evans.
The adoption of MMS in Europe -- where the service is most common -- has been sluggish. London research company Datamonitor doesn't expect the MMS market to be worth more than $4.9 billion in 2006, which is almost half the $9.1 billion that simple short-text messaging, or SMS, raked in last year. Nonetheless, Electrolux plans to sell the MMS Fridge in some form, although it hasn't set a date for its release."
