We have a tumble drier with a "buzzer" alarm (five ascending notes with a needly kind of electronic tone) that tells you when the washing is as dry as you want it to be.
So, you hear the buzzer, go to the machine, open the door to get the dry washing... and the alarm sounds again: triggered by the opening of the door.
Get this: you are actually in the process of opening the door - and the alarm sounds to tell you to open the door...
What kind of person decided that it was a good idea to install such a mechanism?
What kind of person then sits down to design a device to tell people to do something that they are actually in the middle of doing?
What kind of consumer expert imagines that this will be a popular feature?
What kind of a world are we living-in - that such things happen, yet nobody is called to account?
