Even worse would be if the firmware locked the refrigerator door because it's no longer supported.
This is where I was going with this topic. Sure, if the fridge continues to work without support, no biggie. But if it doesn't and the vendor no longer supports it?

Let's say the software does something unfortunate, like raising the temperature to 60 F? I lose everything in the fridge, or possibly get sick if I don't realize the problem immediately. [This is also a problem is someone "pranks" me by hacking my fridge and resetting the temperature.]

Having a plain 'ole fridge eliminates all these hassles. Being "smart" is an unnecessary "feature" that can break or provide some idiot an opportunity to mess with me.
