Modern technology, while useful, has been somewhat of a disappointment to those of us of a certain generation. I mean, it's nice to have access to the sum of human knowledge at my fingertips - as well as order a pizza or a ride whenever I need it - but where is my hoverboard? My flying car?

And while technology can be harnessed to solve the world's most pressing and complex issues - clean energy, mitigating poverty and inequality, curing diseases; just to name a few - we seem to spend an awful lot of time on trying to make the smart technologies even more convenient for ourselves. Who cares if the planet is burning up outside if our home appliances can automatically adjust the temperature inside, using an app that cleverly measures our body temperature thus avoiding the need to laboriously stand up an walk over to the thermostat? Such are the modern times!

The Twitter account Internet of Sh*t recognizes our obsession with frivolous, useless and downright invasive new technologies and there's nothing better than to poke fun at it. Because nobody really wants a world where Facebook controls our money and reads our minds with brain-machine interfaces, do we? Perhaps we could focus a little more on say - an alternative to plastics and fossil fuels - and less on building a hyper-convenient, dystopian world of mind control, data harvesting and artificially intelligent fridges?

Scroll down to check out some of the public shaming from Internet of Sh*t for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Adjust the balance knobs on the bottom correctly and a fridge should automatically shut.

I wish things were made like they used too. So much waste because of corporate greed. Fridges lasted 20+ years, cars lasted just as long if not longer. Now things last half that time if that. We have become such a throwaway and wasteful society.

I just got a Google Home and if this tap is anywhere near as good as that, I'll be wasting 100s of liters of waters every time I want to fill a pan.

My wireless mouse works fine on my MacBook. No extra add ons or plug ins needed.

Yeah, I have a wireless mouse with a USB receiver and don't have this problem with my Mac, either. I haven't needed any of these adaptors. I guess mine IS two years old though, who knows what hardware changes have been made. I wouldn't mind a second HDMI port on mine though...

Look up Bluetooth, it's a thing. What next, you're going to complain you can't find a lightning-to-PS2 converter to use you 10y old wired keyboard?

Wait: that laptop has Bluetooth. Why do you need a dongle?? If the mouse doesn’t have standard Bluetooth, it’s crap.

I've been using bluetooth mice with my MacBook Pro for nearly 10 years. Switching to the 2017 MacBookPro was painless. Why would anyone buy a proprietary wireless mouse when there are so many bluetooth mice out there? Even logitec has a few of them.

bit of a problem on anything with only one usb port, dongle or not... try finding a bluetooth trackball for even MS laptops o_0

Why not just put the USB in the USB spot instead of the extension?

They connected a non Apple device to an Apple device? Heresy! Burn the unbeliever! Yeah, go do one Apple, you have become scum. I suspect that Apple powers its corporate headquarters using a generator built around the spinning corps of Steve Jobs.

I love eating. Now, why the f*ck would I want to get an electronic fork that destroys the immersion (if you wanna call it so) by annoying me way more than even the most helicoptering parents could? Also, I probably can't eat while it's doing a software update. I'd like to throw it out in the garbage, but my shoes are updating at the moment...
