    Phoronix: Enlightenment... Now Running On Refrigerators

    The Enlightenment Libraries haven't even hit version 1.0 yet (though they're getting close and in beta right now), but these libraries and other parts of Enlightenment are already in production use. Besides Samsung getting in bed with Enlightenment for their smart-phone Linux OS, this open-source software is now appearing in... refrigerators...

    I guess it should have good cooling for the over-clocking crowd...

          This could give a different meaning to the the occasional temperature benchmarks in Phoronix articles...

              Fridge Logic, apparently.

                Because it's doable.
                Just human nature

                  Eh, fridges with a built-in internet terminal aren't anything new - first saw one at a show maybe 8-9 years ago. The concept is supposed to be a modern to having notes and recipes and stuff stuck on the fridge with magnets...

                    Does this fridge include small cameras so I can see what's in it without letting all the cold air fall out, or is the screen just a gimmick?

                      no, it does not have such a thing. :-(

                      The screen provide temperature controls, presets like vacation/party modes and also to get drinks and food to the correct temperature in their special drawer. There are also applications to avoid post-its and like, such as contacts, calendar (with alarm, for birthday reminders), photo viewer (ie: picture frame with slideshow) and recipe book built-in.

                        Just wait a few years until all those home appliances are networked and home owners are confronted with DDoS attacks against their home-network: "transfer 5000$ to this account, or within 48h all your food will be spoiled, your garage door will be blocked and your microwave will continously post on twitter about your binge-eating sessions!"
                        ah, brave new world

                          Damn... I would never buy a fridge without hardware acceleration!

                            Yeah, but this fridge doesn't maintain backwards compatibility.. If you stick randomly magnets on it, you may brick your fridge!
